  1. Hi,
    When i connect my iPhone 4 to my Surface RT, the import tool doesn’t detect any media in my phone. Same thing when i try with the Windows explorer…

    Any idea why ?

    • Same thing happened to me :( said no media was detected. Hopefully we can find a solution. I am going to keep researching but any help would be awesome!

    • Okay same thing happened to me and I found a solution. First go to your search you can do that by sliding from the left side. Next search AutoPlay. That will bring up a bunch of devices and I found the iPhone device in the bottom so just click that and pit the option “ask me every time” . Hope this helps.

      • I tried the auto play route and it worked once . The next day I had more photos including my husbands iPhone and nothing works again. Days no device found -no files found ?!?

  2. This worked until I upgrade my software on the iPhone. Now I had to unlock the phone and then select “trust this computer” on the phone before any files were found
