I actually thought I had this same problem, but it ended up I had not put the card in correctly (or, for that matter, fully) and simply needed to put the card in for the songs to show. Make sure the card does not stick out more than 1 mm or so from the device, I had mine nearly a full centimeter outside the device and was for some reason convinced it was in the MP3 player correctly.
Then again, maybe I'm just silly and none of you have that as your problem :D
Hmmm.... put your sd card in.Try this go to settings and go to usb mode. Then click on one of the following msc try it. then mtp try plugging it back into your pc each time and go to my computer and see if there are 2 sansa drives.
If this did not help, put the sd card in power on the mp3. if no songs from the sd card are there hold down the power button for 20 sec untill it restarts.
If nothing still.... download the Firm ware updates. Heres a link Click here

Well, the most memory from a micro sd card the Sansa mp3 player can take is 2gb, because anything more will freeze up the player because it was not designed to read that much memory. So if you have a 1gb or a 2gb memory card, then you can use them.
I expected to find the new playlists on the SD card as a separate file to access and play. Instead the SD card songs show on up the Sansa menu simply added among the existing songs / artists stored in the Sansa. Its not a solution but they are there. Since using the SD card, my Sansa does databse refresh everytime it starts, whether SD card is in it or not.
The Sansa is unfortunatley one huge mess up the programming has failed its working on a database with only 4 levels but for grphics and songs you need at least 7 lhopefully you can return it and get another if not you can try putting another type of chip hopefully that will work
You device is too full.
You need minimum 6MB for the "music database". The more music you have, the bigger the database needs to be.
Try freeing up 30MB or so, that should solve it.
Please add to the question, dont select NOT HELPFUL if this didnt work.
Best of Luck.
It's only reading the data on the micro sd, it just has to have that little time to do that, even if there is hardly anything on the sd, it still needs to check it out, just like it does with its own drive. Don't seat it, if you don't like it see if you can put the data onto the main drive of your sansa.
