You are trying to load them using the CDU (SHIFT+7)?

As in : CDU > RTE > SEND (LSK3L) > FLTSIM FPLS (LSK6R) > NEXT PAGE/PREV PAGE to navigate through the flight plans saved in Documents\Flight Simulator X Files

Strange. When I do that, it shows all the Flight Sim plans I have saved in Documents\Flight Simulator X Files.

I did have problems at one point, but is was with the 777 for FSX-SE looking in the C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files folder, instead of the C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Flight Simulator X Steam Edition Files folder. I'm not sure if I fixed it, or if it fixed itself. Undecided

I solve the flight plan problem by using simple point a -point b GPS plans. I simple type in my destination airport in the LEGS section of the CDU and let the computer plot the course. I have never been able to load a flight plan for my document folders.

Create a flight plan using the default Flight Planner, and save it (use a simple name so it's easy to remember/find.
In the 777, open the CDU > RTE > SEND (LSK3L) > FLTSIM FPLS (LSK6R) > NEXT PAGE/PREV PAGE to navigate through the flight plans saved in Documents\Flight Simulator X Files, or Documents\Prepar3D v3 Files folder, and find your flightplan, select it, and it loads.
Chances are that you will need to add a DEP, and ARR, to the route so that the 777 follows the route properly.

How was the flight plan created (in FSX/FSX-SE/P3Dv3, or elsewhere)?
