I have deleted an important voice memo off my iPhone 3Gs which I had not previously backed up on itunes (stupid I know). I have downloaded iPhone explorer and found a file recordings.db could this be my missing file and how do I listen to it. So far I can't open it at all. Is there any other way to get my memo back?

That .db file is a SQLite database, which you can edit and view using free tools. Download one of those tools—the SQLite Database Browser—and install it on your computer. Open up the sms.db file, and click on the Browse Data tab.
I don't think this contains sound files from what I have read. It looks like all the .db file will tell you is the numbers that were called, etc.

I think you are in trouble because you have deleted them without a backup. If you had backed them up they are stored here via sync :
My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music\Voice Memos

Since that is not the case you might try looking in this directory using Iphone explorer.

/private/var/mobile/Media/Recordings
