It was very helpful to get my pix and video from the trip from my iPhone to my PC (Windows XP). It took several minutes of searching it out to find it because I was looking in the wrong direction.
For whatever reason, the backup system on my iTunes doesn’t direct to where everyone else says it does. I don’t really care about that because my iTunes account will recover it. But the photos and video are a whole other matter.
The essence of the copy is to
- Go into Start->Programs->Accessories->Scanner and Camera Wizard
- In the Welcome Screen, select “advanced users only”
- Select explore like a folder (or something like that)
- Windows will pop up a file explorer window allowing access to the iPhone’s camera and video folder.
And there you have it! Much easier than trying to root around for the iPhone backup that seems non-existent on my PC.
