Ipod Touch Voice Memo Too Large To Email

Hi, Thanks for the nice manual. I have a question about the ipod touch 4th generation audio recorder. I recorded a music rehearsal about 2 hours in length. I selected share and tried to email it to myself. When I selected the share button I got a pop up that said "Memo is too long would you like to select a shorter version version of this memo to send" Close or OK. I selected ok and it attached about 8 minutes which I received in my email in box just fine.
Question? is there any way to get my longer audio file out of my Ipod Touch?
If not, what is the time limit on the share export feature.

Thank you,
David Field, Sebastopol

  • Hi David,
    Typically, depending on the email provider there is usually @ a 10mb limit for attachments you can email. 1 Minute of music is @ 1MB large depending on the type of audio file or compression ratio. So, for large files, emailing them is often not a viable solution.

    There are a bunch of free cloud storage services you can use to upload and transfer files to other locations. I use Dropbox to store large files that I can access later from other locations (which is cool because an O'reilly library can be synced to there too!) The free version will get you 2gb of storage, and with the paid versions you can get more storage as needed:

    So in that case, you could export the file to your PC/ Mac, upload it to Dropbox and access it later, or share it with your band mates.
    My previous band recorded all our practices and we used YouSendIt, to share them,but Dropbox is just as good.

    Hope that helps!
