XML file fails to process correctly

I have an XML file which i am trying to process and for some reason it just doesn't work correctly

The code i use to test is

    Private Sub Button4_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button4.Click
        Try
            Dim m_xmld As XmlDocument
            Dim m_nodelist As XmlNodeList
            Dim m_node As XmlElement
            'Create the XML Document
            m_xmld = New XmlDocument()
            'Load the Xml file
            m_xmld.Load("C:\Users\public\Documents\sample2.xml")

            'Get the list of name nodes 
            m_nodelist = m_xmld.SelectNodes("File/CDRs/Call")
            'Loop through the nodes


            MsgBox(m_nodelist.Count)
        Catch errorVariable As Exception
            'Error trapping
            Console.Write(errorVariable.ToString())
            Console.ReadLine()
        End Try

    End Sub

Your XML document is using XNamespace which you are not using in your code.

Here Alex, try it this way and see if you get results.
Imports System.Xml
Imports System.Xml.XPath

Dim m_xmld As XmlDocument
Dim m_nodelist As XmlNodeList
Dim m_node As XmlElement

'Create the XML Document
m_xmld = New XmlDocument()
'Load the Xml file
m_xmld.Load("sample2.xml")

'' Added these two lines
Dim nsmgr = New XmlNamespaceManager(m_xmld.NameTable)
nsmgr.AddNamespace("ns", "http://www.metaswitch.com/cfs/billing/V1.0")

'Get the list of name nodes
'' Modified your XPath and added the second parameter 
m_nodelist = m_xmld.SelectNodes("/ns:File/ns:CDRs/ns:Call", nsmgr)
'Loop through the nodes


MsgBox(m_nodelist.Count)
