Reason says that the file has a bad format.
You can open files from older version in newer versions of Reason but not the other way round. If you are getting a "cannot be opened", try changing the extension.
If that doesnt work, the file is corrupted. Start the burial ceremonies...however....changing the extension works most of the time. This is caused from older versions of reason btw.... I've lost loads of songs that i thought were dead but just needed an extension change. Sad times.
i'd advise you not to bother with your friends tracks as he uses 5 and you 6.5. you have the SSL mixer.. he doesnt... theres so much incompatibility to talk about between both. tell him to save up like you did lol
