Somehow when I setup my new iPhone 4, all my photos/videos from my 3GS got synced into my Camera Roll. Today, I had over 2k photos/videos in the camera roll, so I decided to organize them. I sunk everything into iPhoto on my MacBook Pro, and then DELETED all the originals (so they wouldn't be cluttering my Camera Roll). Well now NONE of the videos that were originally in the camera roll are NOT showing up on my phone. I am very irritated and upset, I use photos/videos everyday for work, and NONE of the videos i've taken with my iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 are on my phone. Now I have a few meeting with some clients later this week and need to show them these videos, my job revolves around it. Can someone PLEASE shed some light on this and give me some info on how to put the videos back onto my phone (even if they HAVE to be in "Camera Roll").

Thank you in advance.

    Go into iTunes. Select the photo tab, select sync from iPhoto, then click on include videos

    The Camera Roll is ONLY for photos/videos that are taken with the iphone. Once you import them to your computer you CANNOT put them back in Camera Roll.

    Camera Roll is temporary storage until you import.

    Following the advice in the above post, you should be abel to get them back into your iphone.

    I have a similar problem. I transfered the videos I took with my ipod touch 4g 64gb and now I wanted to add them back into my ipod on photos Camera Roll. I went to the photos tab and checked "Include Videos" but everytime it starts to sync, Itunes stops working and a popout appears and says that Itunes encountered a problem and needs to shut. What can I do?

    Instead of digging up a year old thread that is not related to the issue, try doing a search.  There are multiple threads with issues related to syncing videos and they would be more likely to help in solving the issue you are experiencing.
