I can't figure out how to transfer the pictures from my iPhone to the computer. There is no option in iTunes. I searched for a solution on Google and it says I can use the Scanner and Digital Camera Wizard in XP, but the iPhone doesn't even show up in there. What should I do?

I would suggest you use you digital camera software. If you don't have special software, I would suggest Kodak EasyShare. It works with nearly all digital camera's on the market, including the iPhone and uses the same interface on Windows and OS X.

Are you sure?
When you plug your iPhone in there is an option in iTunes:
Like this…

EDIT: Sorry, spoke too soon.
It doesn't work… weird!

EDIT 2: Seems the only way is to email them… yikes! That is a very strange omission.

Very Trivial

Nope, this can be done fairly easy.

1. Plug in iPhone
2. Open up Image Capture
3. Self explanatory

* EDIT *

Nevermind, didn't see that you were not using OS X. Sorry about that.

From iPhone User Guide:

"Import photos from iPhone to your computer
Connect iPhone to your computer. Then:
- On a Mac: In iPhoto, click Import. iPhoto should open automatically.
- On a PC: Follow the instructions that came with your camera or photo
application."

I think you need iPhoto version 4.0.3.

Also, I believe there is an application called Tansee iPhone Photo Transfer that is designed for this purpose.

How odd.

When I have my iPhone connected to a USB hub (a powered one or through the Dell screen) I am unable to "see" the photos on my iPhone.

When I connect it directly to the front USB port of the Mac Pro it works.

I wonder why that would be? It works fine for syncing and transfering Music, movies etc. Just not photos. :confused:

Try setting itunes to not start automatically when you plug in your iphone. When you now plug in your iphone, XP should offer up some alternative utilities to use to transfer photos onto your computer. (Well at least it does for me!).

Too weird. I tried plugging my iPhone into my front panel USB port and I was actually able to get to the photos on my iPhone. It recognized a new camera device. As it now detected the camera, I was able to move it back into the old USB port and it still works, but why in the world did it happen like this in the first place?

Just got it!

Hey i dont know if you were able to solve your problem but i was having the same issue as you, i wanted to dump my pics from the iPhone to my laptop...it worked for me when i unplugged the iphone from the computer, then plugged it back in and after you hear the little chime that plays when the computer recognizes a USB device was plugged in, pay attention to the little window that pops up giving you the option to copy pictures from device to computer... if you have iTunes setup to where it auto syncs when you dock the phone, just minimize iTunes when it comes up and youll see that little window im talking about. sometimes the window pops up behind iTunes so look for it...any questions email me and ill walk u thru it via AIM or yahoo msngr or whatever!

hope this helps, if you already got it taken care if, i just wanted to help

Mac users now also have the possibility to transfer camera roll photos to their Mac over WiFi. Check out the iPhone app PhotoToMac, costs $0.99 and works like a charm.

With iPhoto and Aperture set as my default image programs – at different times – every time I plugged in the iPhone, it would automatically open the program and go to the import screen were the iPhone was listed like a camera. Have you tried setting iPhoto as your default device for handling images?

Photos from IPhone to Computer

I just used Image capture which allows you to pick the photos to download to whatever folder you need

I also found that ITunes showed my IPhone and camera in DEVICES so there are two ways to get photos

I cannot see my iphone with any sotware

I cannot connect my iPhone with any software except iTunes. Image capture sees it but does not see any images on it. iPhoto and Preview same thing. How do I get my pics off the phone?

No I wont buy a third party app. I already paid buku bucks for my iMac.

NOTE: Fix was found. I logged out and then back in. Now it works.
