But yet it DOES show up in itunes and DOES charge.

The problem is that my Iphone icon is not showing up in the window with the rest of my Hard Drives so now I cant get my photos or videos out.
This just started out of nowhere.I've already had enough problems with 3.1 but I dont think this is related.

I tried looking in CONTROL PANAL but dont really know what Im looking for.

BTW,Im still on Itunes 9 and have not updated yet to 9.0.1 and OS 3.1

Help Please!
