When you plug in and sync your iPhone it should open iPhoto if you have any new pics. If that's not happening, open iPhoto>preferences>general>connecting camera opens:iPhoto. Hope this helps. iMac 2.4 GHZ Alum 20" , Mac OS X (10.6.2), Macbook 13.3" iMac 2006 Intel 17" 1.8HZ iPhone 3G

I have already done as you said, but I couldnt find the iphone device in iphoto, it is as though Iphoto could not recognize the Iphone as a camera, hence couldn't locate it? Its the same with Image Capture, can't locate any connected device although the iphone is connected thru USB cable (BUT from Itunes i could tell the Iphone is a connected device). Any ideas?

Currently Being ModeratedNov 15, 2009 10:10 AM (in response to newfruits)Ok. Well let's try a few things:
1) go to the apple symbol in the upper left hand corner and select software update.Make sure you have the latest software. AND/OR
2) go to Applications folder>Utilities>Disc Utility>choose your Hard Drive>First Aid>Verify Disc Permissions
3)in iTunes under Devices>select your iPhone>check for update.
4)restart your iMac.
I am running through the things that I normally do with my iPhone. Hope this work. iMac 2.4 GHZ Alum 20" , Mac OS X (10.6.2), Macbook 13.3" iMac 2006 Intel 17" 1.8HZ iPhone 3G
Currently Being ModeratedNov 15, 2009 10:26 AM (in response to newfruits)Another way to do this is with your iPhone connected to your iMac
1. Open Image Capture (Command, Spacebar and type *Image Capture*)
2. Highlight your iPhone in the upper left of the Image Capture screen.
3. In the lower left you will a window that says something like Connecting this iPhone Opens:
When you see this choose iPhoto
4. Disconnect the iPhone and then reconnect it and you should be all set.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 15, 2009 4:46 PM (in response to rkaufmann87)Nope, didn't work. Image capture screen is blank and says No camera or scanner detected. Iphone is properly connected, i could see the iphone as a connected device in ITunes. All software is current, also verified hard disk permissions (but not sure what to do with it though), and rebooted... still didn't work.
If i connect an external/portable hard drive to the imac, i could see it being a device in IPhoto, but not the IPhone... like i said, its as though the phone wasn't connected. Could this be a settings issue in the Iphone itself?new imac 27, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 15, 2009 7:04 PM (in response to newfruits)It's a setting somewhere, I suspect on the iPhone. Look under Setting, General and Restrictions, that should be set to Off.Imac Mid 2007 2.8 Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.2), LaCie Quadra D2's, iPhone 3GS, Airport Extreme, Airport Express
Currently Being ModeratedNov 16, 2009 1:33 AM (in response to rkaufmann87)Brilliant! Have been combing the various Q&As on this topic in several forums. Everyone had a slightly different approach, so i guess it really depends on what the root causes are... so many variables. BUT this worked for me... its basically turning off the Autolock function in the IPhone (under Settings>General). Thank you!!new imac 27, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
