Look at this picture. I can't seem to get my iPhone to sync its photos to my PC (they may be getting uploaded somewhere, but I don't know where).

Any ideas?

Right-click on that Apple iPhone device item with the exclamation mark and choose to uninstall it - restart Windows, plug back in the iPhone and see if it rediscovers it ...

Seemed to be working until this happened:

I'd do what Patrick said. If that doesn't help, uninstall iTunes and the iPhone (as per Patrick's instructions), reboot, reinstall iTunes, and then connect the iPhone again.

Tried all of that but it didn't help. And also it is still a stock phone, nothing modified.

looks like a windows pc. open task manager, look in services or processes to see if it auto start, manual, or something else

What version of Windows?

BTW: iTunes has nothing to do with the issue. The iPhone exposes itself as a digital camera via USB. You should be able to plug into any Windows/Mac computer and have it work, no iTunes required. It should even work under Linux.

I would first try the iPhone on another PC/Mac (again, no iTunes required) just to rule out an iPhone issue. If it fails on another PC, reboot the iPhone (turn off, then back on). If it still doesn't work restore it and try again (assuming you have narrowed it down to an iPhone issue).

Are you plugging your phone into a non-powered USB Hub? You might try moving it to a different USB port on the actual computer not through a Hub and see if that helps.
