I had the same problem.

On the MP3, go setting and then to USB.

There are two options: Auto Detect or MSC. One will be checked showing the current connection type. Select the other one and connect the Sansa to your computer.

For some reason, the Sansa doesn't recognize files loaded in MSC if you're connected in Auto mode and vis versa.

In MSC mode, it will show up as a devise with a drive letter. In Auto mode, there's no drive letter; it shows up as a removable devise.

Also note, you can only add Playlists in the Auto mode. MSC mode does not recognize Playlists or if it does, I haven't figured out how to do it
