Recording Voice Memos
You can record voice memos using the optional Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic
or an optional iPod classic–compatible microphone (available for purchase at
www.apple.com/ipodstore or your local Apple store). You can store voice memos on
iPod classic and sync them with your computer. You can set voice memo quality to
Low or High.
Note: Voice memos can’t be longer than two hours. If you record for more than two
hours, iPod classic automatically starts a new voice memo to continue your recording.
To record a voice memo:
Connect the Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic to iPod classic, or connect a
microphone to the Dock connector port on iPod classic.
The Voice Memos item appears in the main menu.
To begin recording, choose Voice Memos > Start Recording.
Speak while wearing the Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic, or hold the
microphone a few inches from your mouth and speak. To pause recording, press the
Choose Resume to continue recording.
When you finish, choose Stop and Save. Your saved recording is listed by date and time.
To play a recording:
Choose Extras > Voice Memos and select the recording.
Note: You won’t see a Voice Memos menu item if you’ve never connected a
microphone or the Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic to iPod classic.
To sync voice memos with your computer:
Voice memos are saved in the Voice Memos application on iPod classic in the WAV file
format. If you enable iPod classic for disk use, you can drag voice memos from the
folder to copy them.
If iPod classic is set to sync songs automatically (see “Syncing Music Automatically” on
page 22) and you record voice memos, the voice memos are automatically synced
to a playlist in iTunes (and removed from iPod classic) when you connect iPod classic.
You see the new Voice Memos playlist in the list of playlists on the left side of the
