There can be several reasons that the Song file will not play on a newer device.

1)  The Song Editor will only work if DECTalk voices are installed.  If you do not have DECTalk voices on your device, contact Technical Support or Customer Service for information on your options to add that voice.

2)  The Song Editor and DECTalk voices are older programs, and sometimes take a while to get started in the Series 5 software on newer hardware.  If you are trying to play a song that has been created on another, older device, the song will take a while to load.  We have seen delays up to 5 minutes for longer songs.  The key is to be patient, and not try to close the editor or play the song again.
