I recently tried to JB my phone and in doing so I made sure to back up my iPhone to my computer. After I restored my phone and synced again, I noticed most of my camera roll was gone.
I thought maybe I messed up syncing somewhere but right now I am trying to sync my girl friends phone and after syncing I don't see the camera roll on her computer. If I restore her phone I'm pretty sure her camera roll will be gone too.
Why doesn't the camera roll sync to the computer?

Camera roll is not synced to a computer they are part of an iTunes backup. If you restored as new versus from a backup your camera roll is probably gone. Only albums you create on your computer and synce with iTunes actually sync.

That's weird I didn't set up as new on my phone. For my GF's phone, just to be safe, I went to computer and "iPhone" and I'm copying the files and pasting them on her desktop.

Thanks tho, sucks that I lost most of my camera roll even after I just synced and restored from my newest backup.
