I have an iphone 4S - and am trying to download photos to my pc (windows 7 -64bit).

I have also downloaded itunes.

 

When I plug my phone into my pc - it shows up in itunes - but it does NOT show up in my devices.

 

There is NO pop-up asking whether I want to import or view pictures.

 

How can I transfer photos to my pc??

 

Any help is appreciated.

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.3

    Normally this is how you would do it http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083.

     

    What happens if you connect the phone and go to Computer? Does the phone appear there? If so, then right click on the device and you will see the choice Import and you will be able to import the photos.

    Start by opening itunes, then going up to "view" in the top menu bar, and select "show sidebar".

    I import my photos from my iphone with iPhoto. It will detect your phone when you plug it in. Just click on it and it will display all your photos for you. Then  you can import it that way. All you gotta do after is move them out of your temp folder when it's done importing.

    In iTunes on the menu bar go to Edit>Preferences>Devices

    And tick "Prevent iPods etc from syncing automatically"

    Try disconnecting the USB to your phone and reconnect.  After afew seconds the phone should beep to let you know its connected.

    Go to Computer on your PC and you should see it under "Portable Devices"  (You may need to scroll down to see it).

    OK is there an "APPLE Mobile Device USB Driver" icon next to it ?

     

    An exclamation mark usually means that the driver is missing or needs updating.

    The driver is for your PC only. Nothing will happen to your phone.

    Did you try starting whatever image capture or camera software you have on your pc? This should see the phone and allow you to import photos from the Camera Roll.

    OK - In devices and printers - right click the phone and select "Browse"

    Then keep double clicking the folder names and eventually you will see the pictures.

    Just COPY them to a folder of your choice on your PC.

     

    If you MOVE them the pictures will be deleted from your phone after they are moved.

     

    The only pictures you can see with this method are from your "Camera Roll"
