Stop movie clip looping when imported

I made a movie clip with the loop function off on publish settings. I also put a stop() action on an action layer. When I import that movie into another movie, I can’t seem to keep it from looping. Anyone know of an actionscript or something simpler? Thanks…

i would have thought u could import it to ur new movie then put it on the stage double click the clip and edit it and put the ()stop or wotever the stop script it on there it should then work if it doesnt work then it’ll be summet more sinister.
