So the cameras/scanners didn't work for me either. It just showed my iphone, no photos. I actually had multiple DCIM folders in windows explorer, it just didn't show all the photos. ChrisJ4203 had asked about iCloud and I'd mistakenly said I wasn't using it for anything other than backups. As it turns out, apparently the Optimize Photos setting was turned on which means the full resolution images aren't stored on your phone, which I think is what accounts for the missing photos. You can check if you have this enabled by going to: Settings > Photos & Camera > Optimize iPhone Storage. If it's enabled, you're storing originals in iCloud. Just turning it off, however, doesn't make the photos all end up on your phone (maybe it would if you have room for them all, which I didn't). It took me a while to figure out how to download all the images from the iCloud to my PC (Apple should make this more intuitive and easier...) but if you go to icloud.com, select Photos, you should see ALL of the photos from your last backup. You can select them all and download them to your PC. I was using Firefox, so the download was annoying... perhaps another browser wouldn't give you a popup for each picture (at least there was a "save settings for all of this kind" option). Hope that helps.
