I got a new laptop (Macbook Pro) and my IPhone is synced with my previous laptop. I've recorded dozens of very long (un-emailable) Voice Memos over the last few weeks and need to get them from my IPhone onto my new laptop. How do I do this?

I got a new laptop (Macbook Pro) and my IPhone is synced with my previous laptop (which I no longer have). I've recorded dozens of very long (un-emailable) Voice Memos over the last few weeks and need to get them from my IPhone onto my new laptop.
How do I do this?
(when I click on the Sync option I get the warning: "Are you sure you want to sync music? All existing songs and playlists on the iPhone will be replaced with songs and playlists from your iTunes library." I fear that if I click this I will lose all of my important Voice Memos as well)

Just to add to what ChrisJ4203 said.  You can sync them to your new computer using iTunes by selecting to Include Voice Memos on the Music tab of your iTunes sync settings and syncing.  However, you still need to re-establish syncing with the new computer without iTunes erasing all the iTunes media from your phone (as the warning mentioned).
If you copy your entire iTunes folder (not just your music) from your old computer to your new one, along with other non-iTunes media you may be syncing with iTunes (such as contacts, calendars and any photos synced to your phone from your old computer) by using migration assistant of following one of these methods: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4527, then when you sync again with your new computer it will recognize your phone and sync as it did before.  You will still have to authorize the new computer for any Apple IDs used to purchase from the iTunes and App stores (in iTunes>Store>Authorize this computer). 
After that you can sync your voice memos to your computer as mentioned earlier.
If you want to archive your voice memos before you do anything with iTunes, you can use a 3rd party program such as PhoneView or Touch Copy.

    Open iTunes and tell it what to sync to the device.

  • I have updated firefox SEVERAL times over the last few months and it never works. The download and setup goes fine, but I still get messages wherever I go that the version I have in not compatible and I have to upgrade. What gives???

    Updated firefox SEVERAL times in the last few months and even though everything goes ok with the installation, it never upgrades! I get notices on my college website as well as other that I have an incompatible version and have to upgrade, BUT OT NEVER WORKS!!!

    In the "More system details..." for your post, it shows an ancient version:
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.17) Gecko/2009122116 '''Firefox/3.0.17''' (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) FBSMTWB
    It could have something to do with that acronym at the end, which I think is associated with one of your add-ons.
    To see your true current version, you can check Help > About Firefox.
    If your true current version is 6.0.2 (today's version), then you may need to clear a setting using the about:config preference editor. Here's how:
    (1) Type or paste '''about:config''' into the location bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful if it appears.
    (2) Type '''agent''' into the filter box and wait for the list to be filtered.
    (3) Right-click '''general.useragent.override''' and choose Reset to return that preference to its default value.
    Any luck?

  • Hi there everyone, I have purchased hundreds of movies and tv series over the last few years and can have not got enough space on my laptop so I have, put them all on to a WD 1 TB hard drive , I have just bought apple tv and am trying to stream my media f

    Hi there everyone I have had to store my iTunes library on an external WD 1tb hard drive,
    Problem is I've just bought apple tv and can't stream my iTunes library from my external hard drive, i have to keep copying what things I need to watch or listen to to iTunes and then stream it that way and it's very time consuming, please excuse my ignorance, but is there a way around this

    As per the question, really...

    The product that I purchased is not working!!!! I need help and I've been stuck in your "Contact us loop" for the last few days and I'm getting frustrated. How do I contact you for HELP!

    Probably the best place to start is the right forum for your product. This is the forum for Distiller Server, a long dead product used by big companies, and probably not what you have. If you can't find the right forum, please let us know the FULL name of what you paid for (please check your invoice, as Adobe have many similar products), and we can perhaps direct you. Good luck!

  • How can I sync my iPad 2 with my new MacBook Pro when it is already synced with my old MacBook? I am getting a message on the new MacBook Pro that says I am not allowed to sync the iPad 2 because it is synced to another iTunes library.

    How can I sync my iPad 2 with my new MacBook Pro when it is already synced with my old MacBook? I am getting a message on the new MacBook Pro that says I am not allowed to sync the iPad 2 because it is synced to another iTunes library.

    1) ensure iTunes is authorized for your iTunes store account(s)
    2) connect your device and right-click or control-click it in the iTunes Source list, then choose transfer purchases from the shortcut menu that appears.
    3) sync the device
    iTunes will wipe the iPad but, since you transferred your purchases in the previous step, your content will be in your library and you can re-populate the iPad with it.
    above works for purchases from the iTunes store. for everything else, check out this post by Zevoneer.
    also, there are PhoneView and iRip.

    You did not steal my thunder. You asked for advice, I provided advice. I assumed that since you nor the "support team" could find your files that you did not have any backup. You should have told us you do regular backups. We have no way to know otherwise unless you tell us.

    I usually have iCloud backup but I got a notification that my phone has not backed up for the last two weeks, and It wont let me do it manually.There is also still enough storage space.  Why did it all of a sudden stop backing up?

    The HT1766 article you attached lists the prerequisites for an iCloud backup:
    iCloud automatically backs up the most important data on your device using iOS 5 or later. After you have enabled Backup on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch in Settings > iCloud > Backup & Storage, it will run on a daily basis as long as your device is:
    Connected to the Internet over Wi-Fi
    Connected to a power source
    Screen locked
    You can also back up manually whenever your device is connected to the Internet over Wi-Fi by choosing Back Up Now from Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup.

    My apple id keeps getting reset. I have had to change my password at least 6 times in the last two weeks and it has now reset again

    You probably are mixing up your password with passwords from other accounts. If i were you i would write down your password somewhere easy to acess and make it very hard to guess if you ever reset it.
