I just checked, and I do not have voice memos checked in itunes as syncing to my computer from my phone. So why was it syncing anyway? I don't understand.

Exact same problem here. Cannot for the life of me figure this one out. Any progress?

I called Apple and all they had me do was erase and reinstall my phone. I don't suggest doing this, though. Things were lost in the process, I can't get my email synched anymore. Such a disaster. They said that they didn't know or understand how this could happen, and that was their only "solution".

Same problem here on my iphone 5. Sorry to hear that I have to do a complete reinstall from nothing as I just don't have the time to setup all my accounts again.
Thanks for calling and posting the only solution.

Have you tried going to the "Songs" tab instead and delete it from there? Hope that helps!

Yeah, they aren't appearing under 'Songs'. Or anywhere for that matter. The only place they appeared is when I go into the 'iPhone' tab when it's plugged into my computer. And Apple couldn't help me.

- Select "Music" from the library (top-left of iTunes 11 or sidebar).
- Select "Songs".
- Click the magnifying glass on the Search Bar.
- Uncheck "Search Entire Library".
- Type "voice" or "voice memo" (without quotes).
- Highlight all of the voice memos.
- Press Delete key or right-click delete.
- You will be prompted to move them to the trash.
The thing to remember is that they have to be deleted from Songs/Albums and not a Playlist.

This removes them from the iTunes library on the computer, but not from the iTunes library on the iPhone.

I am also having this issue. I was pleased to see a thread so recent in time. Has anyone found an answer to this other than "erase everything on my iPhone"?

I was having a similar issue and I if I understand correctly, I think this is a solution for others..
in itunes with iphone plugged in, go to summary tab. click "manually manage music.." and apply. Then go to "on this phone tab" and you can actually physically delete the voice memo playlist or individual voice memos. This appears to have finally worked for me..or at least the voice memos playlist doesn't persist under the "on this phone tab" anymore....not sure it made a huge difference in my iphone available space.

Thank you guillerms you've helped me out today!

Finally! Thanks guillerms! I can't believe Apple techs didn't know this and had someone reinstall his phone. This icloud crap is quite cryptic.

Does this method keep the voice memos in my iTunes? I do NOT want to delete them from there, I just don't want them on my iphone. Thanks!
