    I just plug mine into the USB, Click My Computer, Click on the Phone and browse to the folder(Will only be able "see" the folder with the Photos in them) and copy. Never used iTunes to import photos.

    Yeah is it mounting as a disk? Also what do you mean they "weren't taken with iPhone"? Are these located in the same place as ones you do take with the phone's cam?

    Well if you plug your phone in it shows up as a "Camera" Any photos you save from say the web on your phone will be saved in the same folder with the rest of your photos.

    in a worst scenario case: connect the phone when turned off, your pc should detect it as an external drive (at least that has worked for ages with Creative Zen players and Nokia phones that I owned)

    And than 'explore' the folders and copy the pics

    WAIT!
    Before you do anything, open iTunes and go into the 'Preferences' tab. There is an option under one of the tabs in that window that says something like "Automatically Sync iPhone when connected". Make sure that is un-ticked, close iTunes and then do what ever the other members have suggested.

    If you don't do this and plug your iPhone in, it will try and sync with the PC that doesn't have the images on. Alternatively, if this is just a one of thing, you could just email them to yourself or install the Dropbox application if you already have an account.
