Pyrus Electronic MP3 Player is terrible. I wish I had never purchased this product. I don't know how others rated it so high.
1) No playlists, just a single "favorites" list which you must add manually
2) Doesn't read all MP3 Tags correctly (genre not recognized correctly using ID3v2.1, 2.2,2.3)
3) Doesn't support MP4a (iTunes) audio files
4) Can't charge and play music at the same time
5) Sees internal and SD memory as separate so you can't span music easily across both.
Because it only has a Favorites list.. I changed a bunch of songs from the 1980s to a specific genre,(called 80s) so I could use the genre feature to play them. Problem is.. the Pyrus didn't recognize the genre so it scattered the music between Other and "folk"
It seems to randomly re-interpret the genre of songs and put them in its own categories. Most of my soundtracks were categorized as "other" also. While some were correcly recognized as "soundtrack"
