Help with recovering data in DFU mode

I have an Iphone 4s and it's all smashed up (long story), I am trying to recover the files from it (mainly photos).

When I connect it to my laptop (Windows 7) the light comes on for about 5 seconds then off for about 5 seconds and keeps going. My laptop doesn't recognise the device. I can put it in DFU mode and I hear the sound windows makes when a device is connected, but I've tried a bunch of different programs to retrieve the files and none of them are working. They are all saying "Iphone not in normal mode", So when I exit from DFU mode to go back to normal, none of the programs I am using will recognise the phone at all.

Any help is much appreciated. I have lots of important photos I need off there (And yeah, I know, I should have backed it up. But I didn't).
