    Hi, I'm a newbie here.
    I took a 20 minute video with my iphone 4 and can't get it downloaded onto my computer. I have tried syncing, drag and drop, copy and paste.
    Any other ideas would be appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe upload it to Dropbox? (on WiFi of course)

    normally you would connect it to your computer and use iPhoto or image capture to import the video, Bu if you having some issues for some reason try this app called videosafe.

    When your phone is connected go to "My Computer" and you'll see the phone in the explorer. Just
    open it to where the file is located and then you can do the drag and drop.

    Assuming you're on Windows.

    iPhone explorer is what I use. Make sure you install afc2add from Cydia to let you browse your iPhone root with stability. Without it you will fine programs crashing during transfers.

    I tried to copy some very large video files from my iPhone to my PC this week. They were 45 minute long videos, over a gig in size. I tried to use Windows Explorer to do it, but the copy kept failing. So I surfed around and found a free product that worked great, and I wanted to share it with you. Itís called Copy Trans. It copied all these big files into iTunes for me.

    Connect your iPhone to the computer with USB cable, open My Computer, your iPhone should be in the list of hard drives. Navigate down through the folders until you find your video, and copy the file like any other file.

    Thanks everyone for the ideas.
    I have tried the connect with cable, MyComputer method. Fail.
    So I am grateful to hear of different software. I'll give a try and report back.

    +1 for Copytrans as well! It seems like videos over 5-6 minutes won't transfer from the phone for me. They always come out as 0kb and won't play. Copytrans has been far more reliable for me. I stopped using iTunes for music and use Copytrans to manage it instead.

    I use iFunbox, fast and convenient...but i've also never had transfer issues with iPhoto or iMovie when transferring videos either, so i don't know what Apple could do any better outside of maybe a quicker transfer rate through their native software.

    I know very little about software and data transfer, but it just seems lame to me that Apple software can't support the functionality they advertise, yet some other guy can write software that worked immediately.

    LaunchPad > Other > ImageCapture. Select the long video. Select a place with a lot of space to put it. Click import wait for while while your mac works.
