Currently Being ModeratedAug 22, 2007 4:46 PM (in response to MxM111)You can change how the computer reacts to the iphone being connected through the control panel.
2 things you want to look at is "Auto Play" and "Scanner and camera"
You can set it to automatically download pictures taken with the iphone to the My Pictures folder.
Currently Being ModeratedAug 23, 2007 8:01 AM (in response to Damon M.)Well, the automatic action is to run iTunes, right? So, is there some way to automatically run iTunes and synchronization to My Pictures at the same time?
Plus will my Pictures automatically be uploaded into the phone as well? Like music in iTunes? I am not able to find the way to do it on Vista.E6600, Windows Vista, 8800GTX, 2GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedAug 23, 2007 9:40 AM (in response to MxM111)I use Picassa which of course is free. It recognizes the iPhone when I plug it in and offers to download he photos for me.
For upload however I still have to highlight a directory in iTunes hat contains the photos I want on the iPhone.
Currently Being ModeratedAug 23, 2007 10:20 AM (in response to Borodin)Thanks, I will try that program (never heard about it before). So your reply is really helpful.
However I wonder, what is the OFFICIAL way to do it? How are we suppose to do it according to Apple?
As for uploading, I have problems uploading the images through iTunes that were taking by iPhone itself. It gives me some kind of error. The other images however can be uploaded (but also not all) but it takes like 30sec for each image to be converted to something before it uploads to iPhone. Highly inconvenient.
Plus, how can I make both Picassa and iTunes automatically started when I connect iPhone?E6600, Windows Vista, 8800GTX, 2GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedAug 23, 2007 7:15 PM (in response to MxM111)I have the answer!
Well sort of ... not the official answer and I don't know all of the rules. But, I know why my photos were not be transfered to my iPhone or my iPod.
The file names are very particular ... no parenthesis ... and some times no spaces ... I guess if there are three words in the file name. Join the names together and get rid of punctuation except for underscores "_" ( dashes might be ok but I didn't test them) and it will work!

Currently Being ModeratedAug 29, 2007 7:13 PM (in response to MxM111)I finally contacted apple support and the official answer is the following. Use autoplay to point on "import windows using vista". then run windows photo gallery program and in options for it, point to required folder (play with other options as well). Vista will download all photos automatically.
Then use iTunes and point it to the same folder to sync. So, the iTunes will sync everything to iPhone but not to camera roll, but to photo album on iPhone. This way, if you set windows photo gallery program to delete photos from iPhone after download, after syncing, all your photos will be transfered from camera roll, to computer then back to iPhone but to the photo-album.
Now if only my iTunes could indeed upload photos to iPhone (does not seem to work with RAID 0)E6600, Windows Vista, 8800GTX, 2GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2007 12:01 PM (in response to MxM111)Had no problems when uploading pigs from SD card or external drive to iphone. So just copy to non-c drive, specify this as location of pigs in iTunes for synching, then it worked for meHP, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedSep 12, 2007 4:36 PM (in response to bpc415)I tried that but it still won't transfer my photos from PC (Vista) to my iPhone.PC, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2007 7:44 PM (in response to cgoessl)I was also struggling to upload my pics onto my iphone with vista. I plugged in my external hard drive and uploaded the pics through that instead of the C drive. It worked perfectly! Thanks for the tip!Dell, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedSep 19, 2007 6:03 PM (in response to MxM111)I thought Vista handled the iPhone real well. I was immediately prompted about what to do with the photos on the iPhone 2 secs after I plugged the phone in. Sounds like your default settings for devices upon connect may have been changed. I pointed to a folder I made called iPhotos and then had iTunes sync that folder.
For device setting changes. Go to START – Control Panel – Auto PlayHP, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedSep 19, 2007 6:06 PM (in response to theminhb)It did not work for me because iTunes have problem with RAID, and because of this it could not upload photos. I thought that I was doing something wrong...E6600, Windows Vista, 8800GTX, 2GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedSep 23, 2007 8:49 AM (in response to MxM111)It has to do with the C:\ drive. For me, "C:\iPhone photos" does not work, but "D:\iPhone photos" and "H:\iPhone photos" work just fine with the same photos.Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedSep 23, 2007 11:52 AM (in response to pabloip)are you saying that you do not have RAID, yet you still have problem with C: drive?E6600, Windows Vista, 8800GTX, 2GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedSep 23, 2007 3:54 PM (in response to MxM111)Get rid of Vista. Microsoft's worst OS ever, in my opinion. I use XP Pro and XP Media Center. The only time I have problems with photo downloads, is when I download too many audio files.Dell M140, Windows XP Pro, Media Center OS iPhone & AT&T 8125
