Computer doesn't recognize my player

My computer is not recognizing my mp3 player. It's a Sansa e280. I tried it in the PC and the lap top. When I plug the usb in the device charges but that's it. It no longer shows up as a device. What should I do?

I tried all the suggestions on the sandisk site. None worked even with rebooting. (patches holoding the left button etc.)

NEITHER the 280 nor the View have a menu item as people suggest.

While doing something else hours later it spontaneously came on. It's fine now. I have no clue!!

Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -


Check My Computer. If the PC recognises the Sansa player then simply add the songs by dragging the files into the player's icon on My Computer. Sometimes this kick starts the built in software included on the mp3 player.
