MP3 with ComboBox needs preloader

So I have this MP3 player…and it plays great in Flash MX and Dreamweaver…but it won’t play on the internet. Well, I haven’t heard it play yet, but a friend told me he hit play and came back 20 minutes later and it was finally playing.

I’ve tried to add what I thought was a legitimate preloader, in the hopes of seeing how long it takes to load (the songs are each about 950k). But I can’t figure out how to get the preloader to work within the code built around the comboBox.

Any help? I am a growing newbie…
