I'm using Timelapse on my old iphone 3G, because I hate leaving my phone somewhere undisturbed for hours on end. Last night, in order to try to capture a thunderstorm, I left it in the office window overnight, taking "medium" photos every 10 seconds. I came in this morning to find that instead of still running, it had quit, leaving me an "interrupted" message. It claimed to have taken 0 photos, though there are over 4200 photos in the album.
Now, I can't seem to get my PC to recognize my phone as a camera device! It will sync with iTunes, but Windows Explorer (windows 7, Intel Xeon Quad core, 12GB ram... ordinarily I would suspect the computer's performance, but I doubt it's a problem in this case) never recognizes it as a storage device, and I never get the pop-up to sync photos.
I noticed before, on shorter runs (~2400 photos) that it would only intermittently recognize the camera, and then only after having been connected for some time (I noticed it would suddenly appear as a camera in Explorer after maybe 15 minutes). As an experiment, I then ran a very short session, leaving me only 250 or so photos, and it appeared in Explorer very quickly. Does anyone know if it's possible to just have too many photos on an iPhone 3G? Has anyone else experienced this problem?
