iPhone: Transfer Pictures and Videos from iPhone to XP

   Posted June 26, 2010 by David Kirk in Apple iPhone

iTunes seems to be the ultimate portal for transferring information to sync information to and from the iPhone. This is true for everything except for getting videos and photos off of your iPhone and into your computer. Here is a tutorial showing how to download the pictures and videos onto your XP system. Updated as this is the best method for videos as well.


I looked and looked through iTunes to figure out how to transfer my pictures and videos from my iPhone. I was looking in the wrong place. Using this method you can easily import pictures and videos from your iPhone to your computer.

XP will treat the iPhone like a digital camera device. Therefore, any computer program that will sync to and from digital cameras to a windows box can be used to move the pics and vids over.

If you do not have a program that transfers pictures and videos from digital cameras, you can use window’s Scanner and Camera Wizard…

1. Click Start
2. Click All Programs
3. Select Accessories
4. Select Scanner and Camera Wizard

5. Select the iPhone out of your potential devices.

6. If you want to be able to manually copy pictures and videos over in an explorer-like interface, click the advanced users only link. If you want to copy pictures/videos over in a little wizard-like interface, click Next.

Using either the explorer or wizard interfaces will allow you to delete media as well. Using this method is obviously a lot quicker than deleting the media manually on the iPhone itself.
