    So, iTunes sees the iphone, but your computer doesn't? What do you mean exactly?
    So long, and thanks for all the fish

    So you mean that the iPhone doesn't show up as a camera? Because that is all that it shows up as under the My Computer listings. If it is showing as a camera then your computer is functioning properly.

    You're right CaptainChaos! it doesn't show as a camera in my computer. That's the problem i'm trying to solve. It use to have it there now no more.

    The other problem i'm trying to solve on my other iphone is , wen i plug it into my comp. it says USB device not recognized!

    I tried to repair the Apple Mobile Device Support software under add&remove program but still cannot.

    Pls help?? Thanks

    I have the same issue.

    I have a jailbroken 1st gen iPhone.

    I can sync everything fine with my itunes...but can not see the iPhone camera icon in My Computer. There is no iPhone camera shown in the devices of the control panel.

    The cables are fine as are the usb connections (tried many cables and many usb ports).

    I tried diskaid but that didn't work as it also relies on the camera being picked up.

    Can I manually install a camera driver for an iphone? Is that what is wrong here, a driver issue? (suffice it to add that I have the same issue in Windows XP and Windows 7).

    Does anyone think that the new itunes has done something the built in iphone driver to recognise a jailbroken phone and screw with it? Anyone have an old itunes version?

    Goddammit all I want is to be able to get some pics off it manually (and yes I have several photos on the camera roll).

    Default Fix
    If anyone else has this problem, try going into device manager and uninstalling the drivers, i noticed mine had a yellow warning sign with an exclamation mark on it, signifying wrong driver, as soon as i uninstalled the OS automatically found a new driver (Windows 7) i assume this would work with vista aswell, i haven't seen the problem on XP though so i can't vouch that this solution might work

    Old thread i know, but the question did not have this answer.

    Ok, so I am having the same problem. The thing is seeing the camera in "My computer" or "Computer" says that the driver for the iPhone/iPod/iPad is functioning. iTunes shows the iDevice because it is intergrated with iTunes. I donwloaded the camera program and it does let you see the camera, but what I need is the driver so I can jailbreak with redsn0w or greenpois0n. How do I get the driver?
