Sansa Clip+ PC Connection Niggles

Hi! I have been using rockbox with the sansa clip+ for a month or so, and it all worked fine for a while. First time i have plugged it into a pc it recognized two drives - as i have a micro sd card in use as an external memory and it worked perfectly. However, when i plugged it in couple of days later (while the player is off) it automatically switches to sansa's own software and therefore does not come up as external hard drive but a sansa clip+ disc (it does not come up if i try to plug it into a pc while the player is on eventhough it charges up). The problem with that is that if i plug it into a different computer (like my work pc i have wanted to copy some audiobooks from) it does not recognize the player and eventhough it is showing as connected on the player, i cannot find the external hard drive in my computer at all and therefore cannot get to it. When i unplug that i have to turn the player off and then back on to get rockbox to kick in. Is there any way to set it to a prefered way of connecting to a PC, so it functions just like an external drive/memory and i can then simply copy the files over like i used to? Thanks in advance.. Kay
