Suddenly and out of the blue, my iPhone doesn't show up anymore in iPhoto, so I can't get my photos off the camera :-/

I've not changed anything that I can think of so I don't get why it suddenly doesn't work anymore. I couldn't find support on this issue so I'm asking here

MabBook Pro 17" + iPhone 3G 16GB, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    I have the same problem. I read that a solution could be to increase the number of pictures on the iPhone to about 120 and then restart the phone and the computer and try again. Sounds like an odd way to solve the problem...

    Madness! There HAS to be another way, anyone? :-/

    Hi there,

    My problem: I can't charge my Iphone's pictures to my computer.

    Since the last upgrade (9.1.1), my Iphone 3GS is no more recognized on my computer as a device. He is by Itunes. It used to work perfectly: ie. when I had new pictures on my iphone, computer recognized it directly with a popup proposing to charge them from iphone to computer.

    Consequence is: my iphone is full of pictures I can't charge...

    USB ports work fine, iphone not recognized in "Camera and Scanners wizzard", the configs are OK...

    I really do not know what to do. Please advise.

    Thanks a lot!

    My wife is having the exact same problem! She has a 1st gen iPhone and wants to put all of here photos onto iPhoto (since she is going to upgrade to the iPhone 4) and iPhoto wont recognize the iPhone! iTunes reads the iPhone just fine and her phone is up to date! I've restarted her phone a bunch of time and nothing!

    Yep, me too... Nothing is working.

    I can sync from Aperture or iPhoto to my iphone, but not the other way around?

    You have a corrupt image file in your Camera Roll. It probably came from an MMS, email or saved from a web page. Email any such photos to yourself and delete them from the Camera Roll on the phone. This will fix the problem.

    thanks! i was having the same problem and it occurred on the same date too. strange. anyways excellent fix and everything is back up without any problems.

    I'll try it thanks. God, I'll have to mobileme off all my pics then first, I think when you take them off that way it cuts the size/quality in half

    Never mind, can't be helped a guess. Then I'll delete them all and start over, it's gonna take ages as I have many photos, but if it works I'll post back here with the results.

    You probably have another corrupt image file in your camera roll.

    If you have downloaded any pictures from the internet, delete them including ones sent via email and you saved the file to your phone or on MMS.

    Remove them all and download them again on your computer instead.

    I think the cause of the problem was due to pictures having funny character in the file name or hidden info in the file with special characters.

    As soon as you remove these problem files iPhoto should pick ip straight away and you will be good to go.

    I recently had this frustrating problem with my iphone not showing up on iphotos when connected. I have a 3G. My husband has the original iphone. When his was connected, it showed up on iphotos, when mine was connected, nothing. SO issue was definitely to do with my actual iphone and not any settings on iphotos.

    After reading the posts above, I proceeded to delete many images I had downloaded from websites/mms and those that were emailed to me.

    This still did not fix the issue.

    The only MMS files I did not delete were a couple of videos my friend with the 3GS had sent to me. I did not want to delete these because there isn't an option to email those to myself... so I HAD to delete them too. As soon as I deleted those two videos, iphoto found my iphone! Amazing!

    Only issue now is how do I get my videos off my phone?!!
    On the MMS there is only an option to "save video" and once saved, in the camera roll, there is only an option to delete video! no email option available!

    Did Apple forget to add another option where one could email it or save in another method that did not interfere with iphoto?!

    When this happens I disconnect my iPhone, the reconnect it. As soon as iTunes starts to sync, I click on the x in the iTunes progress bar at the top to stop iTunes from syncing. As soon as I do this my iPhone shows up in Aperture. It works every time for me.
