When I plug my iPhone 4S into my computer, it appears in iTunes and syncs without issue.  However, when I go to "My Computer", it no longer appears. I've had my 4S since release day and it has always appeared there until last week.  I've been using "Photo Transfer App" or "Dropbox" to upload my photos from my iPhone to my laptop, but it takes much longer and is just inconvenient.  So, does anyone know how to fix this?
