Hello. I have a movie that requires the download from an
external source of 25 different swfs. I use a thumbnail button to
bring down each swf by going to a frame that then loads the swf
into an empty clip. This all works fine. How can I return to the
various frames holding the movieclips without a reload each time?

I do this sort of thing by loading the external files shortly
after the movie starts instead of when the user gets to a specific
frame in the movie.
Make one layer for each clip to be loaded. Position the
target clip off the visible area of the stage. Load in the new
movie content. At the frame where you want to show a particular
loaded movie, move the target clip to show the loaded movie. Move
it again in the next frame.
If you have a lot of movies to load in, as you do, you
probably want to use a loader object to track the loading process.
You want to load in each new movie sequentially, not all of them at
