    Just got the iPhone 3gs for an early father's day present, and have a question. I can shoot apparently impressive video, but how do I get it onto my computer? iMovie doesn't recognize the iPhone, and iTunes doesn't sync the videos back as far as I can tell.

    So, besides the very clunky option of emailing the videos I shoot to myself, how can I get them onto my Macbook?

    I use Windows and open the iPhone like a drive and drag the movies out. I haven't played with iTunes for that yet. There is an option to publish to your Mobile Me account if you have one of those and then you could download it. Other than that, I would have to wait the wifey to get home as she uses a MacBook. ;)

    I was wondering the same thing, yesterday. Just open iPhoto when your phone is connected to your computer and all your images and movies will show up. Click on the ones you want and click import. Piece of cake.
    Much easier than trying to use voice activation feature to play a song:mad:
