This behavior and a fairly exhaustive list of resolutions is detailed here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3195
If that does not take care of it for you, you might want to hit up the iPhone forum as this is usually an issue with the data on the iPhone and not with iPhoto.
Hope that helps.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2011 7:33 PM (in response to rhythmproject)From my experience I think its a bug related to the number of photos on the phone. The more photos I have loaded on my phone, now well over 1300 and 111 movies, the slower it is to appear in the iphoto device list. iPhoto is auto launched when I plug the phone in so it is detected properly on the usb bus and the app launch is triggered. I am working to isolate now but it could be the compare between photos on phone and the iphoto library, parsing out the duplicates, which means a db scan which would get slower as it grows. This should not delay the device showing in the device list if the code is architected properly, but perhaps its not, and it waits for the compare to happen erroneously first.MBPro CoreDuo 2.0, Mac OS X (10.6.6), iphone 4 latest iOS
Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2011 9:49 PM (in response to Gregory Lynn)Follow-up on my post, yes, after deleting my photos and re-accessing iPhoto, my iPhone4 appeared quite quickly in the device list in iPhoto, which proves a good chunk of my theory about the number of photos and related compare operations interfering with the device load into the list.
**Note iPhoto sees ghost placeholders for all the photos that were deleted and import is activated for same, a 2nd bug in iPhoto.

We also saw something like this - I had awesome note installed and two notes had pictures in them. After removing the pictures from the notes, my phone showed up in photo and imported correctly. You might check other apps that can embed images. Hope this helps someone out there.

I had a similar problem on my 2009 MacBook Pro running 10.7.2, iPhone 4S and iPhone '11 (both of which had the most recent updates as at the time of this post): my iPhone was appearing and working correctly in iTunes, but was not appearing in iPhoto or Image Capture. I had >1000 photos on the camera roll, including some saved from Safari and emails etc.
The following fix worked for me: unplugged external monitor. Voila. That's it. So, in troubleshooting this problem, I recommend that others try unplugging _all_ other peripherals before connecting their iPhone.
