.ds files won't load properly

I am trying to use a bank of .ds (drumsynth) presets that should load with the drumsynth in Fl Studio. However, they are not producing any sound. They appear to be loading into the drumsynth sampler, but are not producing sound. I cannot see the form of the sample in the sampler either (see screenshots).

I would attach a .ds file I have the problem with, but I cannot attach .ds extensions to this forum. I am using FL Studio 20, signature edition.

Note: I can use these .ds files perfectly fine in other DAW. It's just FL Studio that isn't reading them.
