I actually had this exact same problem with my Sansa m230, and I was running from place to place just looking for an answer; I actually stumbled across it through some related searches here on this site ('reset' specifically), and I tried it out and it worked for me. The Sansa m230 has two USB interface modes, and choosing one will make your system recognize the device differently than if the other is chosen, so songs that were uploaded using the USB setting 'Auto Detect' (which tells the thing to use something called 'MTP' mode) won't be visible again when it's connected using 'MSC' mode, and vice-versa. Simply put: Unplug the little bugger, go into the USB settings, and choose whichever of the two settings isn't already selected, and plug it back in. For the future, I'm going to erase everything from one mode and put it back in through the other mode, just so this doesn't happen again. <. Hope this helps.

I have the fix for this:
if you are using an older unregistered copy of WINDOWS, then your problem is that you need to have a newer copy of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER operating on your system. If you have recently reformatted and lost your newer version of WM Player , then you have lost the drivers necessary to read your SANDISK player and your OS will not show the older MP3 files on your mp3 player in Windows Explorer . You need to download and install a newer version of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER because it contains the newer drivers that your SANDISK requires.

You need to have an Mp3 player like VLC media player installed in XP or whatever your OS is. A lot of people who reformat lose their VLC media player and then only files in WMP format show up in their WIN XP explorer program.
Once you have VLC reinstalled, the old MP3's icons will reappear .
