Iphone memos

I record voice memos via iphone. When I play them back through an AUX port they don't play as they are not in the phones muic library. They only play back via the iphone speaker. Also to make it easier to view I would like the voice memos to appear in the phones music library.

I have been unable to get this working. When I connect the iphone to itunes the memo's sync fine and appear under music but on the iphone they are still in two seperate areas.

If you copy them to the computer under iTunes ... you can open the Get Info dialog for the Voice Memo ... and under the OPTIONS tab there is a Media Kind drop-down.  You need to change this from Voice Memo to Music.  Once it is a Music file it can be managed as a standard music file.

In iTunes ... the Voice Memo files are usually listed under the Artist = iPhone and the Album = Voice Memos.
The m4a files are located in a folder called Voice Memos inside the iTunes Music folder.

Changing the option from voice memo to music doesn't appear to have any impact. I have even changed it and re-imported the files to music and did a sync. They still appear under the music section in itunes but on the phone they do not appear in music : (
