How can I get my voice memos off of my iPhone?

I have a new iPhone and took some pictures and recorded a few voice memos.  I would like to save these before I restore my iPhone to the back up I have on my computer.  I was able to import the photos into iPhoto, but I am not sure how to import the voice memos.  Normally, I would see them in iTunes under the Voice Memos playlist, but they are not there.  When I click on the iPhone in iTunes it gives me a choice of restoring from back up or setting up as a new iPhone.  I am worried that either of choices would get rid of the two voice memos I have on my iPhone.  Any advice?

Hey mahongue!
I have some information here that may help you import your voice memos into iTunes. This information is written for the iPod, but the steps for saving your voice memos should be the same with your iPhone:
Synchronize
If iPod is set to update songs automatically and you record voice memos, the voice memos are automatically downloaded to a playlist in iTunes when you connect iPod. Once downloaded, the voice memos are removed from the Voice Memos folder on your iPod. To play the voice memos that have been synchronized to your computer in iTunes, select the Voice Memos playlist on the left side of the iTunes window. To play the synchronized voice memos on the iPod, select the Voice Memos playlist in the Music menu, not the Voice Memos menu in the Extras menu.

  • I had to get my hard drive replaced from Apple, I lost all of my music obviously.  My question is, how can I get all my music off of my iPhone onto iTunes?  Since it's a new hard drive, the iPhone isn't recognizing this as it's home computer.

    You will need to use third-party software to transfer music from your phone to the iTunes Library. I recommend Phone to Mac - Pod to Mac | Macroplant.com.

  • How can I get my voice memos back to the voice memo app on my iphone

    Yeah, i just synced my iphone with my iTunes library and almost everything went smooth..  my pictures, apps, contacts, calendar, etc.  But I can not find the most important thing, the voice memos..  I had transferred them to my iTunes library the last time i synced, so i thought logically they should sync back into my voice memo app. Its important because they were lectures (im in college)!  And I planned to keep in order until the end of the semester until i had to restore it and back it up (because i went to get a new iphone)..
    But now, i open the voice memo app, and its blank, there's not one memo..  And i don't know how to get them back in there..  I think i could put them in my Music library, but i dont want to do that.   I like to keep them in the voice memo app, so when i have exams i can just go back and listen to them in order (without them being all over the place.) 
    So all I'm asking is, is there a way to get my voice memos back to the voice memo app?  I have the latest version of iTunes (11.0.1.12) and an iPhone 4 with the latest iOs (6.0.1) and note i have a PC (Windows 7)..    I hate how iTunes totally changed their layout, it makes it harder.  That's why i couldn't follow older discussions on here, because the update made the layout so different..  Anyway, if you know what i should do, i would be very grateful.  Thanks.

  • How can I get a Voice Memo from my iPod to my PC?

    I record discussions with coworkers on my iPod Touch because I have trouble taking handwritten notes.
    The trouble is that the Voice Memos playback screen is small, and the Scrub control is so small, that it's hard to use with any precision. I wind up going back two minutes in the recording when I only need to go back 30 seconds, that kind of thing. It's very time-consuming transcribing notes when I listen to much larger portions of the recording than I need to, multiple times.
    To make things worse, the Scrub control in Voice Memos is very near the Delete button.
    All I want to do is move or copy this recording off of my iPod and onto a PC at my job, so that I can listen to it on a larger player that's easier to use. Needless to say, I'll manage to play an unprotected audio recording on my PC one way or another.
    My "real" iTunes installation is at home. Can I move the file from my iPod into an otherwise empty iTunes installation at work? I'd also like not to erase my iPod by syncing it to an empty iTunes installation; been there, done that.
    I've tried Messaging these recordings to friends with iPhones to be able to see the recordings as an attachment to a Sent Message. This gets me a larger QuickTime player, but there are drawbacks with needing to Message a 24-minute recording to a friend with an iPhone.
    I would also be happy to be able to use this recoding in a larger player on my iPod without the silly business about Messages that is cited above.
    Thanks.

    Thanks Caramby.  I actually found another work-around
    Here's how to copy the voice memo to your laptop (and then email it if you need to):
    With iTunes open on the Voice Memo folder of your device (an iPhone 4s in my case), simply drag the required file from iTunes and onto the desktop of your pc/laptop.  It won't remove the file from your device but simply make a copy.   Then you can play the file from your pc/laptop (through Quicktime) as the file is in AAC format.  You can also attach the file to an email for sending.
    Hope this helps someone else.

  • How can I get the Voice memo's source computer file to keep the original file name?

         I ran out of space in my iPhone some weeks ago and I've been cleaning up. I am pretty much done deleting the photos and apps. The only thing I need to finish is erasing my voice memos. I already synced my music/voice memos with my computer, the only problem is that when I get the files from the iTunes media it changes the name and makes it extremely hard to organize. I want to upload this files to another website so I can access them freely.
    I would REALLY appreciated if anyone could tell me how to fix this or if you have another method please tell me.

    This is pretty straightforward.
    If the file isn't too big you can just read the entire file contents:
    set fileContents to read file "HD:path:to:the:file.txt"
    Once you've read it in, you can iterate through it with a repeat loop like:
    repeat with eachParagraph in (paragraphs of fileContents)
      -- code here to process each line
    end repeat
    Within the loop, eachParagraph represents each successive line in the file, so all you need to do is pull out the data you want. Now your subject says that your file is tab-delimited, but your example uses commas, so you may need to adjust this script depending on what's actually the case:
    set my text item delimiters to tab -- or "," as appropriate
    set firstName to text item 1 of eachParagraph
    set lastName to text item 2 of eachParagraph
    set emailAddr to last text item of eachParagraph
    -- rest of code here to send an email
    The last thing to do is to reset the 'text item delimiters' to their previous value so you don't end up getting confused.
    So, putting that all together you end up with something like:
    set fileContents to read file "HD:path:to:the:file.txt"
    set oldTIDs to my text item delimiters -- additional code to remember the current TIDs
    set my text item delimiters to tab -- or ","
    repeat with eachParagraph in (paragraphs of fileContents)
      set firstName to text item 1 of eachParagraph
      set lastName to text item 2 of eachParagraph
      set emailAddr to last text item of eachParagraph
      -- rest of code here to send an email
    end repeat
    set my text item delimiters to oldTIDs -- restore the TIDs for cleanliness
    Note that this should work for reasonably-sized files (up to a few thousand records). If it's much more than that you may need something a little more sophisticated to read the file progressively rather than all at once.

  • How can I transfer my Voice Memo (47 min) from Iphone to computer (pc)?

    I have tried to connect my Iphone to my pc and open Itunes, but the Voice Memo doesn't turn up in Itunes. I'm afraid I can lost my Voice Memo if I syncronise. Can I use Icloud or Dropbox? I really need help since I have an interview on my phone and need to save it on the computer. Greatful if anyone know any solution to my problem. Marit

    Follow the specific steps to transfer voice memos from iPhone to Mac:
    Launch iTunes on your Mac.
    Connect your iPhone to a USB port on the Mac using the iPhone's included USB cable. The icon of your iPhone will appear in the left pane of the iTunes window.
    Click the "Music" tab at the top of the iTunes window.
    Click the "Sync Music" check box to select it.
    Click the "Include Voice Memos" check box to select it.
    Click "Apply." The voice memos you recorded on your iPhone will transfer to your Mac. They will appear in the "Voice Memos" playlist in iTunes. The voice memos will remain on your iPhone until you delete them using the iPhone. If you delete a voice memo in the iTunes Voice Memos playlist, it will not be deleted from your iPhone.

  • How can i get magic voice changer on my nokia c6?

    hi just wondering how can i get magic voice changer on my nokia c6? please if anyone can help thanks!

    Make sure your own music files are saved in the proper folder (Digital sounds) whether in your memory card or the phone memory, the location should still be:
    Sound Clips > Digital Sounds.
    If your songs/mp3s are saved anywhere else, it will not show up as a selectable ringing tone.
    You can move your songs through File Manager on your phone if they are in the wrong location (Options > Move to folder).
    Hope that clarifies it for you.

  • How can i get a still photo off an iMovie?

    How can i get a still photo off an iMovie?

    You do not need the QuickTime MPEG2 disk image unless you want to convert some MPEG2 clips. For photos, you don't need it.
    You can buy it from Apple at this link, but like I said, you should not need it.

  • I have a new computer. i signed into itunes but my music isn't there.  How do i get all my music off my old iphone to the new computer

    I have a new computer. i signed into itunes but my music isn't there.  How do i get all my music off my old iphone to the new computer so i can put all the music on my new one.
    The guy at att told me that icloud would sync everything i had in my notes, calendar, and text messages to my new phone, but it only synced some of my notes, none of my messages, or calendar info.

    Your music will only be where you put it.  It will not magically appear on a new computer.
    Copy everything from your old computer or your backup copy of your old computer to your new one.
    If for some reason you cannot do this, then you can transfer itunes purchases from an iphone:  Without syncing - File>Transfer Purchases
    You can also redownload itunes purchases from icloud in some countires:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store

    You can't. There is no memory card. It uses flash memory that's soldered to the logic board. If you didn't back it up, your data is gone.
