My iPhone 3GS doesn´t show up in the Scanners and Cameras tool or in My Computer when I connect it via USB to Windows XP. Nor does the Camera Wizard pop up. iTunes does recognize the device, but it doesn't offer a way to synchronize photos.

How do I make Windows XP detect the device as a Camera? I currently have no way of downloading photos from the iPhone to my computer.

Thanks for your help.

Your iPhone should show up in My Computer. Drill down to the XXXApple folder(s) and copy your photos from there. If you need photo syncing, you can try something like Microsoft SyncToy.

No, it doesn't show up in My Computer. I guess that's part of the problem although iTunes does recognize it. – ines May 20 '10 at 19:38
