I have already tried that. The videos do not show up in the explorer (which would be the most sensible option) and if I choose to the options to import it just gives an error that I need to install some mysterious scanner.
Thank you though for the reply.

When I connect my iPhone 5 to my PC running Windows 7. The pc acknowledges the phone and a window pops up just like the AutoPlay window in the example in Julians link. I select "Import Pictures and Videos using Windows". I get both video's and pictures in the next window that comes up. The window does only show vids and pics that have not been previously downloaded. I'd have to navigate to the folder where they've all been getting dumped to see previously imported pics and vids.
I never get a request for a mysterious scanner.

Now when I try to import it will import pictures but it will nowhere offer any video options. Any ideas anyone?

I Figured it out!!!!
My solution was to download the new iTunes and here is why I think it worked:
I tried to download the old iPhone explorer thing to search for the file and it required iTunes, which I didn't have. I was running Vista because I had to reset my pc to factory defaults (poor old PC haha. if only I had money for a new one). I don't like iTunes at all so I never bothered with it. Anyway, I started downloading the new version of iTunes (10.something) and about 1/8th of the way through the install, my pc started installing driver software on its own. It turned out it was installing drivers for my iPhone 5 (this occurred 1/8th of the way through right after iTunes installed some Apple components stuff for PCs) and this time, when I looked in the phone's folder for its data, my 30 minute video was there !!! So I think what was needed was a driver on my PC for my phone which for some reason didn't install until I got some Apple components (which was the first part of the iTunes install).
Thank goodness I don't need to touch iTunes and thank goodness it works! It is truly a wonderful phone and hopefully this will offer another solution to finding those pesky large video files (or large video file) that won't open up in the explorer.

I'm curious, can you now just connect your iPhone using the lightning cable and have windows download pics and vids or do you have to do something else to make it work?
