Hi There, I have two folders on my Iphone One called "Camera Roll" and the other called "Photo Library" I have no problems editing or deleting photos from the "Camera Roll" folder but cannot access the "Photo Library" folder. I have tried searching on Itunes but only option there is, is to sync the folders that looks like it will delete all the picture on the phone and replace with all the photos on my laptop. Can someone please help as there are photos in the "Photo Library" folder I would like to delete fully.
Thanks For any help on this subject.

Iphone 3G, Windows 7

    Correct. Photos in the Photo Library are synced from your computer. You need to delete them (or move them out of the folder you synced them from) _on your computer,_ then sync your iPhone.

    Photos transferred from your computer via the iTunes sync process are selected under the Photos tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes. These photos are stored in your iPhone's Photo Library. This is a one way transfer process only - from your computer to your iPhone. These photos cannot be deleted with the iPhone. These photos can be removed from your iPhone the same way the photos are transferred to your iPhone - via the iTunes sync/transfer process.

    To remove all photos transferred from your computer, deselect Sync Photos under the Photos tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes followed by a sync. If you manually manage photo storage on your PC - manually creating folders for select photos, create a parent folder on your computer for to plance named folders of select photos that you want transferred to your iPhone. Select the parent folder under the Photos tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes followed by a sync. To remove one of the named folders of photos from your iPhone, remove the named folder of photos from the selected parent folder followed by a sync. To remove select photos from your iPhone in one of the named folders of photos, remove the photos from the named folder in the parent folder followed by a sync.
