Apparently on my latest HTC phone, the voice recorder default storage setting is set to "Phone Storage" as opposed to "SD Card". I just switched the setting to "SD Card". From my Win 7 PC, I can view the new *.amr files now saved to the SDCard in \My Documents\My Recordings.

I want to find and transfer previous 150 recordings stored on "Phone Storage" ultimately to my PC. If I need to go to SDCard first, that's fine, but how?

Did you try removing your sd card and connecting the device to a computer? – Sid Jan 9 '13 at 3:41
I have an otter case, somewhat of a pain to take apart. Seems like I could use FileExplorer or something to transfer files to SDCard? Do you need "Root" or something to view phone disk itself? – NealWalters Jan 9 '13 at 14:37
If it allows you to, of course! – Sid Jan 9 '13 at 14:39
Still note sure what you are saying I should try now. I tried file explorer, and couldn't see the drive either. Why would removing the sd card help... I'm still stuck... – NealWalters Jan 14 '13 at 17:59
When I look in ES File Explorer, I see Voice0001.amr through Voice0152.amr. When I plug phone into Win7, my H drive, same folder shows Voice0153.amr through Voice0160.amr. I don't understand why the files below 153 show only on phone. For now, I think I'm going to share them to DropBox, but I'd like to figure how to to get to them via USB share-drive connection. – NealWalters Jan 16 '13 at 5:37
