PC doesn't detect iphone
Well, my problem is that pc doesn't detect my iphone (itunes, camara, etc) neither charge when it is on (just charge when it is off).
Someone said me that could be the internal cable that connects the dock but i don't know...
I'll wait you can help me

If your using the Apple cable it should not be a problem. Third party cables on the other hand are a mixed bag for the unknowing consumer. Some cables work just like the Apple cable meaning they sync & charge. Others though are designed to either sync or charge only not both. I don't know why they are designed that way but because it defeats the purpose of an all-in-one cable.

From your phone go to photos, delete any images saved from the Safari browser. Remove any pictures in the camera roll that wasn't taken by the camera. Including screen shots and saved images.
Power cycle the phone and Computer then try plugging it in.

whmurray mentioned above.
Connect the iPhone to your computer and open Device Manger. Find the iPhone in the list (it MAY be listed as a generic looking Apple device). Right click it and select Uninstall. When complete, disconnect the iPhone, wait a few seconds and reconnect it. Windows should detect the device and reinstall the drivers. When complete, open iTunes.

OP, try my suggestion first before going for the nuke option.
You should also try to eliminate factors. You've eliminated the cable. Try connecting you phone to some other computer. See if it shows up.
Still, my suggestion would take only a few minutes. Try it first. Clear the camera roll.

P.S. If you want to take the pictures out without hooking it up you can always email them to yourself. Use the copy and paste method though so it's full resolution.
