It is quite common that camera roll photos on your iDevice will disappear suddenly due to lots of reasons, such as accidental deletion, jailbreak, locked passcode, and so on. Fortunately, everytime you connect your iDevice to computer, you are allowed to backup your device via iTunes. After you do the backup, you will get an SQlitedb file created by iTunes stored on your computer. However, you can't view the details in the backup file directly.
