How do I copy pictures and videos from my iPhone to a PC (no iPhoto)?

Copying photos from your iPhone to a PC is a different process than using a Mac. Most Mac users simply use built-in iPhoto software to move videos and pictures to the computer.

First plug your iPhone into the PC using the USB cable.

For Windows XP:

1. Navigate to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Scanner and Camera Wizard.
2. When the Select Device window appears choose Apple iPhone and hit OK.
3. Click Next to use the wizard. If you'd rather copy photos manually using Windows Explorer then choose "advanced users only."

Windows Vista:

1. Windows will automatically recognize the iPhone and an AutoPlay window will appear.
2. Select "Import pictures." If you'd rather copy photos manually using Windows Explorer then choose "Open device to view files."

Sometimes Windows will not recognize the iPhone. When using XP you may receive the following error:

The computer cannot detect the scanner or camera.

1. To fix this problem disconnect all USB devices.
2. Right click "My Computer" and select the device manager.
3. If you see an Apple mobile device listed right click and uninstall the driver.
4. Reboot your computer.
5. Reattach the iPhone and now it should recognize the device as a camera.


hi,
First you plug your iphone into your PC via the usb cable provided.
Automatically it should come up with a box asking you wether you would like to view photos or import to PC. If it does not com up automatically, there shoudl be a small usb sign in the bottom right corner of the screen, with a tick on. Click on that and the same options should come up on that.
Failing all that if you have a camera recomded site, that should shoudl come up automatically to import you pictures.
Also you can click the tick-box requesting for all the photos on the device to be deleted. This will leave you with more space on your phone!
Hope this helped :)

Excellent tip.
The transfer only works one way: iPhone to PC and not in reverse. If you can't find the USB symbol to click on, you can also get to the 'device' via the Start button, then selecting the 'Printers and Devices' link. You should find your Apple iDevice at the bottom of the list probably in listing entitled 'Unspecified'. Right click your way through to the folder with your files in it.

If you're on a Mac, lets you see all your photos and the albums without a problem. You can even use the iPhone as a "portable hd" if you like. The only caveat is that you need to use PhoneView to put stuff on and take it off.

I am really stuck as this has not worked for me. Because there has been no way yet that has worked to get my content off my iPhone 3gs I have been operating with 3.0.1! I am desperate for an alternative means to transfer to my pc. My iPhone stopped showing up in my pc device manager shortly after I got it years ago. However my pc pings when I connect my cell to it & iTunes recognizes my phone, opening up each time. Because my ios is so outdated I cannot download an app as an alternative method to get iPhone content to my pc or some storage cloud as all apps require ios of 4.0 or higher!

I have the latest drivers, I have tried all the various ports on my pc, I uninstalled & installed iTunes again in case there was some issue. *My iPhone does not show on other computers under device manager & interestingly other iPhones when plugged into my pc do show under device manager!*

I have searched apple forums for same problem & what was suggested did not change anything for me. I have posted there as well for help but no one responded. Updating my ios isn't an option for me until I get all the material I have transferred off my iPhone.

Does anyone have any ideas for me to try? I'd be very grateful for help. Thank you!!

Try taking your phone in to your local service provider or apple store & they can probably help you figure out how to et your pics off of your device. If they can't assist you they may be able to point you in the right direction. If going to the store isn't an option you can always call tech support at apple :) Good luck!!

To get photos and videos moved from iPhone to PC, The tool named TunesGo is an excellent option. Apart from photos and videos, a lot more files on the iPhone can be transferred with this program. It is also an ideal tool for managing and backing up files on iPhone.

Using the Windows Explorer is a quick way to transfer photos from Apple devices to PC. But there is something that you forgot to mention maybe, that is, people should make sure that their iPhone is unlocked.

if the iPhone pictures are not showing up in Windows, make sure the iPhone is unlocked first. Otherwise the iPhone will be found in 'My Computer' but all of the content on it will be invisible and inaccessible.

If you run into that, all you need to do is touch the iPhone, unlock the screen and enter the passcode, and all of your stuff will be visible as expected.

Also, I find that there are still four more ways to transfer iPhone photos and videos to computer: http://www.m2mate.com/resources/5-ways-to-transfer-iphone-photos-to-computer.html
