Just can't access photo library on iPhone from Mac system
 
Blowing my mind

Having some issues accessing or even finding the photos stored on my device.

iPhone 4S iOS 5.1

Image Capture only sees the "Camera Roll" (500 or so pictures in there) but I can't access anything else.

Here's how my Photo Library is structured on my device:

Camera Roll (518)
Photo Library (2,385)
Old Camera (741)
Old Library (1,644)

I can't access the last three using Image Capture, iPhoto - can't even find any of these photos via 3rd party file browser utilites. I've also mounted the iPhone to disk but can't find photos anywhere. (I've tried showing/hiding hidden files in OS X - still nothing)

It's strange - they're obviously on the device somewhere.


Any ideas?

I suspect it's because the three missing libraries have been synced TO the device so it's assuming they already exist elsewhere and aren't eligible for transfer.

You could try iExplorer

I assume the same. There's gotta be a way to pull them out. I have a dozen systems and don't remember which system I one-way "sync'd" these photos with. They're on the device - iExplorer isn't showing them anywhere. I can't even see the Camera Roll photos in iExplorer.

Must be locked/hidden

Ideas?

You could try an app like PhotoSync

Let's you transfer over wifi

OK I found them in the /PhotoData/Sync folder. Now I have to figure out how to remove certain "Libraries" on the Device and leave only the Camera Roll

Check to see if they are listed in the iTunes photo tab in which case you can just untick them ans resync.

I'm good now thanks

Only Camera Roll left

For the benefit of others finding this can you post the solution that worked please?
