While connected through USB, you might have an option in your notification (swipe down from the top on the phone) for how the connection to the PC is interfaced. Changing this dialog might make it show up.
Another option is to power the phone down, remove the card and plug it into the computer through a USB card reader. Most Oses recognise exFAT which is the format Android uses.
Still another option is to share folders from your PC through Samba (windows file sharing) on your network and acessing the files from your phone using one of the common file managers. I use Total Commander with the LAN Plugin addon, tho ES File Explorer is a more popular solution.
