I am sorry that I don't know how to do quotes or anything but I don't know why it isn't permanently staying like that for you it is for me... Maybe search for how to make drivers stay after reboot?

Win7 64bit iPhone photo sync can work

I find that if I go to iTunes, with the iPhone connected, and select my phone in the devices and then the Photos tab, I CAN sync my pictures IFF I select "All Folders" (as opposed to "Selected Folders"). So I had to move my 2000+ pictures into about 12 subfolders under one new folder (I call @iPhone) - and selected @iPhone as the one folder to sync. Note that my @iPhone folder is now on a NAS drive. (Not sure this has anything to do with this... but my picture folders to be sync used to be on C: -- and that was when I couldn't sync any pictures at all -- and also when I used to use the "Selected Folders" option.)

So - to recap: move all the pictures to sync in subfolders under ONE folder and select that folder with the "All Folders" options. You may be lucky as I have been. I have restarted to PC, and added some pictures after a first sync, and it still works perfectly.

Oh, and I *did* follow the counsel of our 15 year old friend above! (Using the device manager to reinstall the drivers for the iPhone (found one - one under "Mobile devices" - and then two under "USB connections.")

Try hard resetting your phone.

Disconnect the phone from any other devices. Press and hold down both the power button on the top and the "home" button on the front simultaneously. Ignore the message about powering off. After a few seconds the screen will go black. Continue to hold both buttons until the silver Apple logo appears. At that point you can release the buttons. Allow several minutes for the phone to complete the process.

The sync process should now work properly. I find it useful to perform a hard reset of my phone every couple of weeks or so...just as maintenance.

I tried doing this but it doesn't have my iPhone under Other Devices. I'm not even sure I have the same problem, what happens to me is I press sync on my iPhone in iTunes and it says preparing to sync for about 10 seconds and then just stops. Please help.
