    hi, I've got lots of photo and video taken by the iPhone. I once imported some photos & vids by windows 7 (not iTunes) and deleted those photo/vids afterwards, when I try to import those photos/vids again, the system seems to have 'memory' and does not transfer those photos/vids again to my PC

    I 'd like to know how to have it fixed. thanks

    It looks like Windows stores what photos it has already imported but does not maintain this database correctly.
    Thinking twice about it, this may be the technically correct behaviour because it is still true that this photos were already imported.

    Take a look at this article:

    If nothing else, you should be able to import them using Windows Explorer. The following is from:

    Copy the photos to your computer using Windows Explorer:

    Connect the iOS device to the computer.
    Choose Start > Computer.
    Double-click the logo for the device to browse its folders.
    Go to [iOS device]\Internal Storage\DCIM\100APPLE.
    Copy the content in this folder to your computer.
    Disconnect your device. Open the Camera Roll and delete the photos you imported.
