If you Want to copy data from prod to sandbox,

1) You are using Dev sandbox so frist refresh the sandbox to copy metadata(Object,Tabs) from prod to sandbox

2) Data dont copy when refresh the Dev sandbox box.So,Once metadata is copied using data loader export data from prod and import it into sandbox.

Thanks & Best Regards,
