Ok, this question maybe stupid and maybe asked before. But what is the easiest way to transfer all the photos on my iphone and voice memo back to a computer (PC or MAC). We have a dropbox auto sync photos, but not enough space on my dropbox.

Connect it with a sync cable and it will show up like a hard drive that you can open up, browse, and copy files over. Don't recall if this works for voice memos.

Seriously, you can browse and then drag and drop your pics with no need for extra software. Not sure why all the app suggestions.

The voice memos sync over in iTunes and should be placed in your iTunes folder on your pc.

Thanks all, it seems that I can find the photos and copy to my PC. Now to sync the voice memo, since I didn't enable music sync with itune before, when I try to do that, itune warn me that it will delete all the music and voice memo content on my iphone. Is there a easy way to transfer back the voice memos?

Here's the iTunes warning that comes up: <The iPhone “someone's iPhone” is synced with another iTunes library on “someone”. Do you want to erase this iPhone and sync with this iTunes library?> Good one. Now, does that mean my iPhone gets erased first? Am I going to erase the stuff I spent hours recording? iTunes is beyond ridiculously bad. and why isn't it clear that voice memos - evidently a separate app - creates files that have to be managed through the itunes library and then transfer voice memos from iPhone to Mac.

But hey - love the giant red button in Voice Memos!
