    Hello. Have you tried reinstalling iTunes? Or uninstalling and reinstalling? You may want to try that.

    Try putting your pictures onto a thumb drive or an external hard drive, and then try syncing. Or, additionally:

    By default, Windows Vista uses an NTFS file system, and for some reason, this causes problems when syncing photos to the iPhone. In order to sidestep this problem, you’ll need a USB flash drive, or an external hard drive that is formatted using the FAT32 file system.

    Step by step example (We’ll use C:\Documents\Pictures as our default photo directory, swap this out with your actual photo directory. We’ll use F:\ as our FAT32 formatted drive.):

    Copy all pictures from your current NTFS formatted drive C:\Documents\Pictures to F:\Pictures (or to a directory of your choice)
    Open iTunes and select the new folder that you want to use to sync photos to your iPhone - F:\Pictures
    Sync your iPhone and everything should work smoothly.
    Prior to moving all of my files to the FAT32 formatted drive, I was only able to sync 45 out of 102 pictures, now all 102 pictures sync to the iPhone with no problem.

    USB cable issue

    I had the same problem and it was the cable. I was using the cable that came with my ipod. The cables have developed over the years and the new USB cables for the Iphones have data receptors in them whereas old ipod and some charge only USB leads do not have these data receptors that are required for photos, Iphone 3GS etc. I got a new lead and my problem was solved.
