I put this here cos people in the phone forum sometimes lack the required initiative...

I've been tasked with redoing some work left by a guy who no longer works for the company.
The boss apparently insisted that he leave notes to help me sort it all out.
I got a CD today which contains all the work and it seems the guy decided to leave all his "notes" in the form of audio notes, which I now have to go through... and there's f**king hours of them.
Some are only a few seconds long and some ramble on for half an hour.

I have a fairly decent audio convertor so I should be able to batch-convert them all into .mp3 files or whatever else an iPhone can play.

Main question is, simply, how do I send a heap of audio files to my iPhone so I can listen to them at leisure rather than being forced to sit in front of a PC to go through them all?

I assume it'll be something to do with importing them into iTunes or summat?

Secondary to that, what sort of audio file do I need to convert them into so they'll play on my iPhone?
I assume .mp3 would work?

Believe it or not, I've never done anything related to music or audio stuff with my iPhone before.

Convert them all to mp3 format then sync them to your iphone.

Gonna need much more than that.

No idea what you mean by "sync them to your iphone".

Audio formats supported: AAC (8 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), HE-AAC, MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps),
MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV

If the bit rates of your mp3 files are among 8 to 320 Kbps, they should be playable on your iPhone.
Just transfer them to the phone with iTunes. If iTunes doesn't work, try this 3rd party tool.

Yes, import them into itunes and then sync with your phone. There are plenty of tutorials on youtube.
