    Unhappy iPhone not showing up in iTunes or iPhoto, but showing up on desktop?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
    Hey,

    I have an iPhone 3GS 16gb running 3.1.3 and itunes 9, with iphoto '09.

    when i plug in my phone, it shows up on the desktop like normal, but when i click on it, it opens up itunes but it doesn't show up. the when i click "open with iphoto" it starts up iphoto like normal, but then it doesn't show up in iphoto either!

    I want to sync my music, photos, etc, but this little "bug," or "glitch," is keeping me from doing that.

    any suggestions?

    Have you tried shutting down the iPhone and rebooting?

    I have the same iphone and no issues on my Mac Air.

    There was just a Snow Leopard update that came out that is suppose to address this issue.
