    That's normal.

    You need a third party piece of software to browse the iPhone's directory structure.

    I use THIS.
    Works great.

    if you are using windows I recommend you try using winSCP, google it, then connect your iphone to browse the folders/files in the iphone.

    the pc will only see it as a camera, you need itunes to copy pics, songs, video over to the iphone.
