Loading external swf problem


i used this tutorial to make my website load external swf’s when viewing images.


and it works, except for some reason, in internet explorer, the loading movieclip in the middle of the transistion (while loading the images) freezes, and doesnt fix untill the images are loaded (a few seconds later) and then evrything goes fine again. the swf is about 3 MB.
but in netscape, the animations play smoothly through the transition and the images load and show in the same time as IE.

so they both load the images in the same time, but in IE, the animations freeze untill the images are loaded.

can anyone help?
i cant show the file because my host has reached its limit for this month, and the .fla is 11MB :puzzle:

thanks for any help or advice.
