I have an iPhone 3GS and an iMac operating on OS X 10.6.8. When I sync my iPhone to the iMac, all of my voice memos transfer, except key memos dated before a certain date or 5/4/11. I can't figure it out. I've looked through all my preferences in iTunes and on the iPhone but without any luck. Any clue what the problem may be and how to fix it?

 

Thank you...

iPhone 3GS, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    I am having the same problem but with my iPhone 4. Anyone have a solution to this

     

    I have updated iTunes, the phone and tried syncing over and over again.

     

    Thanks!

    How Long are your memos? 1 min/3/5/20/60mins?

    Same problem here. I have new memos, created as recently as this month (02/2012) that appear on my phone but don't show up in the Voice Memos list when my iPhone 4S is connected to iTunes. Nothing changes with syncing either. These memos are from hour-long meetings, so they're close to 60 minutes long.

    I am also having same issue. Voice memos from my phone do not sync to iTunes.  I tried trimming them just a hair and they started to show up with a sync, but when the sync finished they were grayed out and I couldn't click on it to play it. It also had the little sync symbol next to it like it was syncing but nothing was happening. Is this an ongoing bug with voice memos?!

    I got a way around it. It's a bit long but works. Email the memo to yourself and then download it. Then open it on itunes and find it inside the Music folder (top left). Then copy and place it wheneve you want. It's the only way I could managed to move them from the memo library to my prefered playlist (despite ticking the include voice memos box). For some anowying reason memos are not allowed to be moved around!

    I have the same problem with an iPod Touch running iOS 5.1. Voice memos used to sync but dont anymore. Also I used to be able to add my existing voice memos to a playlist in iTunes but they wont do that any more either. Seems a lot of people have been having this problem but it hasnt been addressed in OS updates. Curious.
