1) Battery still won't last more than 10 hours with MP3s only and not even using any of the games! Just straight playback. I charge it every other day.
2) The New Music function on the music browsing tree will never work: it counts the SD card as new music whenever I plug the J3 on. COMPLETELY unuseable
3) and of course the clock still stops whenever the J3 is charging, which means it's never on time

How complicated is it to release a good firmware when all the other companies are doing it?
So I'll be looking for another player, hoping there's something better... I'm tired of half assed jobs.

2) You need to preserve date created when you copy the stuff over. Mine works fine, I have stuff I just ripped last night which is in the 1Day, nothing in the 1Week, lots in 1Month, and the rest in Etc., although it's all by song title, so I find it pretty useless for me.
