Windows 7: iPhone syncs but doesn't show up on "My Computer"

Thank for the update on your issue and welcome to SevenForums,
There's usually only one high speed usb port which would be gold tinted,
Odd it would prefer a usb port possible the others are wore out :/

Thanks. I can't tell that any of them are gold tinted. The others shouldn't be worn out. I do almost everything on my iPhone so the computer doesn't get used much. (Figures since it's the first time I've had my own new laptop rather than a hand-me-down, lol.) My husband rarely uses it because he has his own computers. He's actually the computer guru. He didn't have time to figure out the issue before work yesterday though so I decided to have a go. I really just joined the forum afterwards to let others know that post had been helpful for me.

Resetting an iphone will most likely wipe the files clean so I doubt that would be advised to do,
If nothing else email them to yourself or use Onedrive app available at the apple app store it's a freebie,

Tears of Joy

I must apologize in advanced for commenting on a thread so old...

I've been itching my head on this problem for MONTHS (quite literally 6 months)! I've researched and tried/texted a million different fixes... None have worked - UNTIL NOW! I want to share my appreciation with you all!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was experiencing the same issue as the original poster of this thread. Same. Exact. Issue. I read through the entire string of comments and found the last one before his was fixed, and BOOM! worked for me too!

Thanks everyone, I was going over mountains just to get my photos off my iphone 6... now I can do it easily, as it should be.
