I assume that all other (not midi) files play ok.
Have you checked the speaker options (in volume controls) to make sure that midi is not muted?
If you still have the problem post back with details of your operating system and sound card etc.

MIDI Music Playback set to Creative MPU 401 (Soundcard)> no details. Switched to Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth (nothing muted) and lo and behold everything works.
Many thanks.
