    The bug occurs when the photo names generated by the iPhone reach IMG_10000.xxx or higher, where the xxx represents either a JPG for photos, PNG for screen snapshots, or MOV for videos. Once you've reached this 10,000 mark milestone in your iPhone photography career, the Mobile Photos app no longer displays additional media files. Luckily, however, the photos are still there--they simply don't display on the phone.
    The Phoneview utility from Ecamm on Macs--the free demo version works long enough to uncover the missing photos. PC users can find their shots via iFunBox (free).

    Hopefully, Apple will fix this error in the 3.1. In the meantime, a simple work-around, is the best alternative:
    Sync your iPhone in iTunes making, sure that the backup completes and that you sync all your photos when prompted and--this is important--manually using one of the utilities above.
    Using the same utility, delete all folders on your iPhone inside the DCIM folder that are named xxxAPPLE, where the XXX is the number 100-999.
    Take an test photo with the iPhone and check to see if it shows up in the camera roll.
    Repeat the delete step above.
    Restart your iPhone by pressing and holding Home plus Sleep/Wake until the Apple Logo appears then release both buttons.
    This resolves the problem by resetting the number of pictures to its initial state--far below the 10,000 milestone that caused the problem in the first place.
    Do hope that helps
