templates wont update - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I have a site that was designed by someone else using Dreamweaver and this includes templates. He sent me two updated templates and Im trying to get them to update the pages on the site. Couple of things, DW keeps saying there are no editable regions, which is rubbish... and then the templates dont update any pages.... If I choose Modify, Templates, theres no templates listed at the bottom like there are on another site I have which works fine.. anyone else know of a setting or something or maybe problems with newer versions of DW created templates not working ...

    Mojosue:

    Can you show me the code on a template page that is being described as not
    containing editable regioins, please?

    After saving the templates in your site, did you recreate the site cache
    (SITE | Recreate Site Cache...)?

    Moj:

    If the template was created in DMX and you are using DW4, you will be
    completely out of luck since the syntax of all template markup changed so
    radically between those two. It would be like trying to open a Microsoft
    Word 2000 doent in Word 1.1.

    think the other answer is more likely. The site was created in MX and Im
    using version 4. I figure the one site that works was created in 4 as well
    before the designer upgrade. Ill check this out with him
