I know I can import audio files from online services such as Google Drive and Dropbox, but I have to have uploaded the audio files to those services first, naturally. I'm going to be on a trip without my computer and am trying to determine how to transfer MP3 files (or any audio file) to Box or Dropbox without a computer.

I sometimes use my Olympus recorder to record audio when filming with my iPhone and it's too far away to use my Røde SmartLav+. I have an Audio-Technica lavalier mic with a long cord so I do sometimes use that plugged into the iPhone, but there are times when that's not possible or practical.

My normal process is to record to the microSD card in recorder, transfer the file(s) from the card to Dropbox using my computer, then import into LumaFusion project. I have the SD card connector for my IOS devices but am only able - as far as I know - to transfer photos and videos using it. I have a WD MyPassport wi-fi hard drive to which I can transfer the files (and I'm taking it with me), but I have no way to then get it to an online service and LF, of course, doesn't "see" it.

I tried downloading the audio file from the drive to my iPad thinking it would go into the Music App but it didn't. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Thanks, LumaLuke! Since I have the SanDisk iXpand drive, I went with that. Have only used the drive to copy files from one device to another and hadn't even noticed the share icon (box with arrow pointing up) when viewing files!

See that I can export right into LumaFusion or up to one of the online services, so when off somewhere with no Internet connection or computer this should work.

For those who might want to do something similar here's the workflow:
(1) copy audio file(s) from audio recorder's microSD card to my Western Digital MyPassport
Wi-Fi hard drive Pro
(2) insert my SanDisk iXpand flash drive in USB port on the MyPassport drive
(3) copy audio file(s) to the iXpand
(4) insert iXpand into iPad and go to iXpand "View Files" menu
(5) select file(s) and press share icon.
(6) import iaudio file(s) into LumaFusion!

Actually, with the newer WD MyPassport Pro drive I could have microSD card AND the iXpand drive both plugged in at same time and use the MyCloud app to copy the files from the microSD directly to the iXpand, bypassing the WD drive completely!

I added information to the top link of my message above. I prefer to minimize the number of devices that require batteries. They are too bred. :mrgreen: :ugeek:

Lumaluke, as a result of your help I've made a video describing the steps I use with a link to another video that demonstrates my process: https://youtu.be/52gueotLbP8.

Thanks for the help!
