Flash - loading external SWFs

Hi y'all,

I'm working on a piece that has 8 external swf's that play when their corresponding button is clicked. each button instance is scripted in this fashion (with the obvious changes for file names):

on (release) {
if (_root.currMovie == undefined) {
_root.currMovie = "bcr1";
} else if (_root.currMovie != "section1") {
if (container._currentframe >= container.midframe) {
_root.currMovie = "bcr1";

When the main swf loads, clicking on any of the buttons plays the appropriate external swf. But if I click another button to launch a different swf, nothing happens. I am using the same container for each movie, so they should replace each other in that container. It just isn't happening. I'm at my wits end trying to resolve this. Any ideas? www.endexx.com/vt/button.html
