Any idea how I can solve the problem?

Do other PT sessions play okay? How are you opening the session - do you start PT first and then open the session or do you double click on the session to both open PT and open the session? What computer and operating system are you using? Also make sure the USB ports are not turning off due to the Windows operating system power savings measures (I'm assuming you're on Windows considering you are using a PC and not a Mac).

It could be a corrupt PT install or just not compatible with your operating system.
