There are a number of different 24 or 32 bit wav formats out there
(different ways of using bytes to represent individual samples).  Either
your system is missing the dll required to play the sample file in
question or fruityloops is not "understanding" it.

Can you right click on the individual samples and listen to them using
the preview function in the properties dialog?  What format does
properties say the file is?

As a work around, you could try importing the wav files into a sample
editor like cool edit 2000 (http://www.syntrillium.com) and saving a new
16 bit version that fruityloops will play.  You may have to use the
"Import as raw PCM" option if cool edit does not recognise the sample
format immediately.

hope that helps,
