Unhappy Sansa Clip shows no music files on device?

I had to do a system restore on my computer recently, a full wipe of the hard drive and everything. When I went to try to change up the songs on my Clip, all my music was gone! But the catch is this, when I play the device while its not connected, there's music on the device, the computer comes up saying that there is nothing there, even though there is. What do I do?

I'm guessing it's on auto detect, change the mode to same USB mode that you used before. If you loaded it via drag & drop you were probably using MSC mode. If you synced your player via software to transfer music, you were probably using MTP. Once you connect in the right mode you should see your tunes.

PC, Mac or Lunix?

Isn't a certain version of WMP required to provide the needed drivers?

Everybody should own at least one Sansa Clip family player. Except maybe the Sport.

WMP 10 or above is required if one wants (or needs) to use MTP mode. If re-installing XP, I believe it was originally shipped with WMP 9, so one would have to upgrade for the MTP driverrs.
