I'm having the same problem trying to get large videos off my phone onto my XP box.
It seems I can drag and drop everything except for MOV files over 500MB.
This is really frustrating and it's unbelievable how Apple could allow this crap to exist. I see I'm not the only one with this problem.
Why doesn't sync actually SYNC photo and video from the phone onto the computer???
I've also experienced the problem. But I was able to get some success with drag-n-drop from Windows Explorer instead of the Scanner and Camera Wizard.
I also tried Picasa, mainly to get the pictures and video organized by date.
But Picasa also had trouble with reading from the iPhone(4). It repeatedly gave me errors, such as that the destination might be full. Basically invalid errors.
My work around: Sensing this was an iPhone problem instead of XP, and knowing Picasa and other software can read from flash drives as well as other cameras, I inserted a flash drive, used copy and paste to copy everything from the iPhone camera roll to the flash drive.
Then, I used Picasa to "do it's thing" to import photos from the flash drive card. Everything was completel imported and organized as if there was never a problem.
So the issue does seem to be the iPhone, or at least possibly the drivers on XP meant to work with the iPhone. My workaround seems to prove it's not the long videos. (I have a 5 minute video I editted with iMovie on the iPhone 4.)
Someone mentioned a timeout. I can imagine the XP-iPhone-USB drivers having too short a timeout for completing a transfer, which needs to be modified for iPhone videos.
