External swf covering up menu


On my main_test.swf, I have an emptymovieclip that is loading a menu. My problem is that whenever I load an external swf onto the main stage, it covers up the menu. The external swfs are loading into Level 1 and the menu is loading into Level 2. I thought that by loading into Level 2 the menu would appear on top of the external swf?

Can you help me with this problem? I’ll attach my files to this post as well. Thanks!

Code I’m using:

//load external swf

//load menu box
createEmptyMovieClip("container", 2);
container._x = 3;
container._y = 35;
