    The iPhone won't show up on your Desktop or via the Finder as a connected external hard drive since the iPhone does not support disk mode. The iPhone does appear as a connected device via Windows Explorer with Windows for transferring photos/videos from the Camera Roll only. With a Mac, iPhoto or the Image Capture application can be used for this.

    It's not supposed to show up on your desktop... only in iTunes. It can't be used as a removable storage device. The only exception is it should appear in iPhoto as it's viewed by it as a camera.
