External Swfs - Btns not working

This is a grossly simplified version of the transitioning between external swfs
setup (Thanks, Voetsjoeba!), it’s got six buttons (six external swfs),and the first two work. Sections 3,4,5,and 6 won’t load for some reason.

Here’s the code:
Mainmovie, frame 1, layer 1

_root.currMovie = “section1”;

each button:

on (release) {
loadMovie(“section1.swf”, _root.container);

on (release) {
loadMovie(“section2.swf”, _root.container);

and so on, through six.

Each swf publishes to the same e:\externalswf directory, each button has an instance name. I checked my linkage on everything in the mainmovie library (container and six buttons), and export for actionscript is checked. Each external swf has a play(); at the beginning…@#%$&*.
Everything for each item reads the same in the output window. What gives?
I’m pretty sure I’ve checked everything. Stumped.
