    Default Photos on IPhone

    Hi everyone,

    Somebody stole my laptop that had my iTunes account on it. That laptop had all my pictures on it in a bunch of different photo albums. I have a new laptop now and want to transfer all my pictures from my iPhone 4 to my new laptop.

    However, When I plug my iPhone 4 into my Windows 7 computer, it will show up in Windows Explorer as my iPhone. However, the only pictures that will show up within the Computer\My iPhone\Internal Storage\DCIM\ folder are the pictures in the "Camera Roll" album. All the other albums don't even show up in Windows Explorer.

    How can I see the albums and photos on the iPhone that are not in the camera roll folder? For instance, all the photos in different photo albums on the iPhone.

    Thank You

    Did you try using a 3rd party photo manager such as CopyTrans Photo? You should be able to pull your pics off the iPhone seamlessly.

    hopefully you will begin to keep a physical backup of your computer from now on. this is one of the easiest ways to protect your data. back it up!
