The only time the iPhone will show up in My Computer when connected is when there are pictures in the Camera Roll.
The iPhone is not designed to be viewed in disk mode like the iPod.
Disconnect the iPhone, take a single picture, reconnect the iPhone and it should show up then.

Do yourself a favour and Install the app Simple Transfer Pro on your iPhone and you'll never look back.
It allows you to easily transfer photos and videos between your PC and your iOS devices in both directions.

in response to zzynx, but my iPhone is a 3G, and the app is not geared for my model I think.

>> my iPhone is a 3G
??? 3G or 4G doesn't matter.
Your iPhone and your PC should be connected to the same WIFI network (eg. at your home) for the app to work.

As the app's page mentiones:
Compatibility: Requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
so, your iPhone should run iOS 5.0 or later.
Does it? I guess, so.

From the the Home Screen, tap Settings > General > About.
The software version of your device should appear on this screen.
