Problem with getting external swf to work in container clip

I have created a movie that has a scrolling menu containing thumbnail images that link to their larger image which gets loaded into a container clip. This works fine when the loaded swfs don’t have any actions. However some of the swfs will contain images that are larger than the area I am loading them into. This was intentional because I wanted to be able to scroll around the images. The swf with the scrolling image works fine as a stand alone movie but when I load it into my container clip I can’t scroll through it anymore.
