Some things should be easy, right? I think so. But, when I wanted to burn a voice recording from my iphone to a CD, I encountered problems. After searching the internet, I encountered more problems, i.e, frustration! (You know it's not going to be easy when someone has displayed a visual to explain all the steps you must follow in order to accomplish the task at hand.) Giving up on that explanation and still not finding a simple solution, I went back to my computer and continued to explore on my own.
Within about ten minutes, I accomplished the desired burn. And, I decided it is high time I start sharing my own solutions online. It may not help anyone, but if nothing else, I will have my own step-by-step solutions for future reference for Apple/MAC's little challenges.
Send the voice recording to your email via the "share" feature in your iphone. Go to your email and find your recording. Hover your mouse over the recording that is in your email. A box will appear. Click "save attachment". Another box will appear asking where you want to save your attachment. (Make it simple and save to your desktop, as you can move it later). Once saved, insert a blank CD into your MAC. Drag the saved recording over and place it on top of the CD icon that appeared on your desktop when you inserted the CD. Go to the toolbar and click "file" and drop down to "burn." You should see the name of your saved file in the text next to "burn." Click burn. Done!
For those who want the quick version: send voice recording to email>go to email>hover mouse over the recording>save attachment>insert blank CD>drag saved recording and place on top of CD icon>file>burn.
*NOTE: This method will not work if you make the mistake of placing the CD icon on top of the saved file!
