Depending on how long you've had the player, the batteries may need replacing.
I have seen a problem where the computer would not recognize the player and would not charge it, however.
First, I recommend trying to charge it directly from the computer USB port (not the hub) if possible. If that doesn't help, try reinstalling the software for the player to see if the computer will then recognize it and allow charging.
If neither of these fix the problem, it's probably time to replace the batteries.
You can keep the Sansa plugged in without fear of overcharging. The Sansa will play while it is connected to a USB port that is supplying only power, such as a USB charger operating off a car cigarette lighter. It will not play while connected to a computer.
Assuming the computer puts out enough juice, yes. Not all USB ports do.
Plug it in, and the Sansa should say "Charging" if it is charging. If it doesn't, try a different USB port if possible. If your computer has ports on the front/side and on the back, the back ones are more likely to put out sufficient power.
If it just has a usb cable for charging then yes you would. The charging time varies but it generally shouldn't take longer than 3 hours to fully charge. Check your manual if you have one, it will give you more information.
