Flash player 9 not loading flash 8 files?

hi , im sorry if this has been asked before , the database gave me an error while searching …

i only have access to flash MX 2004 Professional and need to create a very basic site for my game server.

when loading the page with flash player 9 installed all i get is a blank white .swf file and nothing happens , no loading whatsoever , anyone know if i can still build a flash site in flash 2004 ?

did some thinking and is it the .html page it is embedded on ? do i have to change the html code for script class , its on javascript now , and is the same as it was when flash 8 was working back a year or two ago.
