Problem syncing voice memos to ITunes from IPhone 4?

Recorded Voice Memos will not sync to Voice Memos in ITunes. After connecting the IPhone, I tried Transferring Purchases, then Backup, but they do not appear in the ITunes library. Have been having this issue since latest update on 25/4/2014. I tried unticking and reticking reference to Voice Memos under Music.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated

Hi mallee fowl,
Welcome to the Apple Support Communities! I understand you are trying to transfer Voice Memos to your iTunes Library. On the Summary pane in the sync settings make sure your Manually manage music and videos in not check marked and when you sync your iPhone a playlist should be created called Voice Memos in iTunes. Please use the following article for reference. 
iPod: Recording voice memos
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 hope this helps,

  • IPhone iOS 5.1.1 will not sync voice memos to iTunes

    My iPhone running iOS 5.1.1 will not sync voice memos to iTunes. I have tried trimming the memos, and changed the label. No go. The "include voice memos" is checked on iTunes sync, but iTunes won't even create a voice memos playlist. Help? These are brand new recordings, and they are too long to email.

    Try Handbrake to convert your movie to an iPhone format.  Then reimport it to iTunes and synch to your phone.

  • Problems syncing voice memos from iphone

    When I am syncing my iphone, even though I have the "sync voice memos" box checked, my computer does not sync voice memos from my iphone.  There is a voice memo playlist in my computer's iTunes but it does not show as a possible playlist to sync with my iphone.  Can you help me?

    Same problem. I just noticed that when I click the triangle next to my mounted iphone in itunes and then select the voice memos playlist (which should give me a window into what is actually on the phone) it does not show any voice memos past a date in June - and I have several dozen memos recorded since then.  They are there when I look at them on the phone itself from within the voice memos app.
    It seems that for some reason itunes just can't tell they are there??

  • Syncing Voice Memos to iTunes - Workaround

    Not everyone can sync their voice memos to iTunes, and no one really knows why (or cares).  Here is a workaround.
    Part One - Email the Voice Memo to Yourself
    1. Select the voice memos application.
    2. Select the voice memos list (button in lower right hand corner).
    3. Highlight/Select the voice memo to send.
    4. Select the blue Share button (lower left corner).
    5. Select the gray Email button.
    6. Address the email to yourself and select the Send button (upper right hand corner).
    Part Two - Save the Voice Memo to Your Computer
    This part varies for everyone.  I am going to assume you know how to save files from your email to your computer.
    Part Three - Add the Voice Memo to iTunes
    1. Open iTunes.
    2. Select: File / Add File to Library.  Choose the voice memo you downloaded to your computer. Click Open.
    Note: the music file will be saved as an 'Unknown Album / Unknown Artist'.
    3. Right-click on the file, choose Get Info.  Choose the Options tab.
    4. Change the Media Kind to Voice Memo (the Media Kind should automatically add a check mark).  Click OK.
    5. Double-click to re-open the file.
    6. Right-click on the name, choose Get Info.  Choose the Info tab.
    Note: You now have a chance to re-name the file anything you want.
    7. Use the Name field to re-name your memo.
    Part Four - Add a Voice Memo Playlist.
    1. Select: File / New Smart Playlist...
    2. Click on Artist and choose Media Kind from the drop-down list.
    3. Click on Music and choose Voice Memo from the drop-down list. Click OK.
    You can now use Voice Memos and iTunes as promised in the Users Guide.

    UPDATE - Apparently large files cannot be mailed out.  So far I can verify that a 27 minute memo cannot be mailed.

  • Syncing voice memos to iTunes

    Got me an iPod touch, 64GB. Using it a lot for Voice Memos. But even though I've set iTunes to "sync voice memos", and even though I've got my voice memos on iTunes already. every time I plug in the iPod it asks if I want to add the "new voice memos" to iTunes. I don't want to, because I have them on iTunes already - and if I accept, it just doubles them up. Am I missing something obvious in the settings here?

  • IPhone 4 Won't Sync Voice Memos to iTunes

    I cannot get my voice memos on my iPhone to sync to iTunes for the life of me.... I have at least 10 and everytime I hit the sync button it goes through the process but never puts them into my library.  I even have the check mark checked.  I read that trimming the voice memos can help, but that didn't work for me. Also tried reorganizing library and deleted voice memo playlist, but I am struggling on this one.  Any ideas would be most helpful.  I feel like there is a bug with the app or something.

    I'm having the exact same problem. IPhone 4, ITunes 10.6

  • 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 do I stop syncing voice memos to iTunes on Windows?

    I want to delete my voice memos on my Windows computer (to free up disk space), but leave the voice memos intact on my iPod. How can I accomplish this? (iTunes says that when I delete from my computer, the memos will also be deleted from my iPod, which I don't want to happen). Thank you for your help (I'm a new iTunes/iPod user).

    How many Gigs do you have on your computer? if you convert the voice memos to AAC which is possible after you put them on iTunes, they take up virtually no room.
    When you plug in your iPod and a notice comes up asking if you want iTunes to put the voice memos from your iPod into your Library, selct "No".
    If you want the voice memos to stay off your computer, your going to have to manage every manually, if you have iTunes manage automatically, it will delete the memos off your iPod because iTunes duplicates Movies, Music, TV shows, Memos, etc, from iTunes directly to iPod. Managing all material manually is a heavy price to pay just to keep memos off your computer. That's the way it goes. If any knows hows to keep the memos out of the Library but still keep on the iPod, that would be pretty intelligent of them.

  • Cant sync my songs into itunes from iphone

    Hi guys I rebooted my computer and I have installed iTunes again. Because I have reinstalled, my songs wont show up on the library when I go to on this phone it shows my songs but I cant sync new songs because it says remove and sync? How do I get rid of this I don't want all my songs to get deleted, Also most of my songs are not from iTunes store.... Help?

    By 'rebooted' do you mean that you only rebooted it, or that you reinstalled its software ?
    If rebooted then aare the songs still on your computer, just not in iTunes - by default your iTunes library is stored under :
    Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
    Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
    Windows Vista: \Users\username\Music\iTunes
    Windows 7 and Windows 8: \Users\username\My Music\iTunes
    If it's there then File > Add To Library in iTunes should let you add it back.
    If not then you should be able to copy iTunes purchases (including apps, films etc) back from your phone via File > Devices > Transfer Purchases.
    For non-iTunes purchases (and for purchases if need be) there are some programs listed half-way down this page which can copy them back : Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device
    Then add them to iTunes via File > Add To Library
    If iTunes thinks that you are trying to sync the phone to a new computer : Syncing to a "New" Computer or replacing a "crashed" Hard Drive

  • Syncing voice memos from multiple accounts to one iTunes library

    I ran into an interesting one today. On the iMac at our house, we have 4 user accounts. All of them point to the same iTunes library (a shared directory that all can see). This has worked great so far, as we can all see all music, and updates are all there etc.
    One of my daughters has been using the voice memo app to quickly record things she wants to keep. She has enough of them now she wants to make sure they get backed up. I searched the web and found that you can add syncing voice memos as an option in iTunes.  However, my other daughter must also have that checked off, and now when we go into iTunes, we see Voice memos, but it's only from the one phone (i.e. it doesn't appear it will sync multiple phones to separate voice memo libraries or even to the same library).
    Does anyone know if you can direct your voice memos to a specific library, or what other alternatives I might have?  Ideally it would be automatic (like syncing) so that it's not something we forget to do.

    - Did it work before?
    - Did you do this:
    Moving recordings to your computer
    You can sync voice memos with the iTunes library on your computer, and listen to them on your
    computer or sync them with another iPod touch or iPhone.
    When you delete a synced voice memo from iTunes, it stays on the device where it was recorded,
    but it’s deleted from any other iPod touch or iPhone you synced. If you delete a synced voice
    memo on iPod touch, it’s copied back to iPod touch the next time you sync with iTunes, but you
    can’t sync that copy back to iTunes a second time.
    Sync voice memos with iTunes. Connect iPod touch to your computer. Then in iTunes, select
    iPod touch. Select Music at the top of the screen, select Sync Music, select “Include voice memos,”
    then click Apply.
    Voice memos synced from iPod touch to your computer appear in the Music list and in the Voice
    Memos playlist in iTunes. Voice memos synced from your computer appear in the Voice Memos
    app on iPod touch (but not in the Music app).
    - Does any media now sync to the iPod?

  • How do you sync voice memos?

    I have new voice memos that I would like to sync, however I dont know how to do it. I have synced memos in the past and they are on itunes. how do I sync new memos?

    From the Users Guide:
    Syncing Voice Memos
    iTunes syncs voice memos to your iTunes library when you connect iPod touch to
    your computer. This lets you listen to voice memos on your computer and provides a
    backup if you delete them from iPod touch.
    Voice memos are synced to the Voice Memos playlist. iTunes creates the playlist if it
    doesn’t exist. When you sync voice memos to iTunes, they remain in the Voice Memos
    app until you delete them. If you delete a voice memo on iPod touch, it isn’t deleted
    from the Voice Memos playlist in iTunes. However, if you delete a voice memo from
    iTunes, it is deleted from iPod touch the next time you sync with iTunes.
    You can sync the iTunes Voice Memos playlist to the Music app on iPod touch using
    the Music pane in iTunes.
    Sync the Voice Memos playlist to iPod touch:
    1 Connect iPod touch to your computer.
    2 In iTunes, select iPod touch in the Devices list.
    3 Select Music at the top of the screen.
    4 Select the “Include voice memos” checkbox and click Apply.
    Some users have had to create the Voice Memos playlist since it did not get automatically created.

  • Problems with syncing voice memos from my iPhone 4 to my PC via iTunes,

    It is not possible to sync voice memos from my iPhone 4 to my PC (Windows 7) using iTunes. everything else synchronizes well, except the voice memos. It used to work previously (same equipment), but now it doesn't anymore. What should I do ?

    What is making you feel that the voice memos are not syncing? Are you seeing a folder created in the Playlist area called Voice Memos? Some have reported this is not necessarily being created, but the voice memos are still located in the Music library. I'm not at my main computer right now, so I cannot see how they are listed in the music library, but I know they are there.

  • HT1766 4 voice memos in iTunes backup from iPhone had ! marks and would not play so I deleted them and although they are still on the iPhone, they will not sync back to iTunes from iPhone.

    4 voice memos in iTunes backup from iPhone had ! marks and would not play so I deleted them and although they are still on the iPhone, they will not sync back to iTunes from iPhone.

    You may have to try deleting all the music from your phone (by going to Settings>General>Usage>Music, swipping All Music and tapping Delete), then sync it all back on with iTunes in order to fix this.

  • IPhone syncs Voice Memos after unchecking sync box in iTunes

    I do not want to sync my voice memos from my iphone to itunes so i have unchecked the sync voice memos option and they still continue to sync over and itunes creates a playlist for voice memos. I have tried this numerous times and even after a restore it still happens? Anyone have any ideas?

    It will happen automatically. iTunes always syncs voice memos to your iTunes library when you connect iPhone to your computer. All you can do is delete them or ignore them.
    Keep in mind that if you delete a voice memo on iPhone, it isn’t deleted from the Voice Memos playlist in iTunes. However, if you delete a voice memo from iTunes, it is deleted from iPhone the next time you sync with iTunes.
    The "Include voice memos" button in the iTunes Music pane for your phone is only for syncing your voice memos playlist back to the phone.
