One thought is that some of your MIDI files have reset sysex's in them and others dont. Try sending a GM Reset before playing the file.

: I use my SB live for midi playing using soundbanks.
: I just reinstalled the computer (windows XP) and upgraded to latests available SB live drivers.
: This ones come with renew look in nearly all applications. Mixer has now a nice blue colored skin.
: The point is that with this updated drivers certain midi files stopped working.
: Allways the same. If I use SW synthesis sound they work fine, but with soundbanks (anyone) they just does not sound.
: if I downgrade to previous drivers (& apps) sound works fine again.
: I contacted SB hotline support and they suggested to use previows drivers.

: The problem is that old drivers are slower (make windows booting take longer) and less stable. Some applications give me Crashs from time to time.

: I've been unable to figure out what makes some midis work fine and other doesn't work at all (always the same).

: Has anyway the same problem? any work arround?

: I don't have exact drivers versions right now (i'm at work) but I can get them tomorrow...
