Edited m4a file not playing in Voice Recorder

I made an audio recording using Voice Recorder and copied it to my laptop for editing with another program. Once I'd finished, I copied the file back to my phone but it no longer shows up in the "List" of available recordings. Obviously, the act of editing has done something, but I don't know what. 

Can anyone please help?

Thanks.

@jgabler: If you swipe up from your Home screen, tap on the Samsung folder and select 'My Files', is the file present in the Audio files category? If so, press and hold on the file > Move > Tap the Back button > Internal storage > Voice recorder > Move here, then check the app once again.

Hi, thanks for replying. The file does show up in the audio file category. I had to first move it to the root because it was already present in the directory. But once I moved it back, the file still doesn't show in the list. By the way, the full path on my phone is Internal Storage\Recordings\Voice Recorder.

I can play it using the Samsung Music app, but I'd prefer using the Voice Recorder because it has a better 'scanning' facility.

@jgabler: While you're in My Files, if you press and hold on the file > Tap the 3 dots in the bottom right > Open with > Voice recorder, does the file play as expected?

Yes, I can select that option, but it opens in a mini-player, see below:

Although interestingly, if I choose another file, I get an Open in Voice Recorder option, see below:
