Director does not play Flash 8. In Flash you should publish your movie as
Flash 7. Set this in the Publish Settings (i.e., File ==> Publish Settings.

There was an update a few months ago that brought Flash 8 support. You
need to update Director to the newest version (10.1.1). Then Flash 8
files will work (as well as a load of other improvements like the
ability to convert Director image data into Flash bitmaps and use the
realtime bitmap controls, like drop shadow, blur, etc)
The original poster said: "I have a Flash 8 member that plays ok the first time through" so I'm guessing ithe flash 8 xtra must already be present.
It sounds more likely to do with the flash movie not initialising properly or something. Perhaps you could try using the lingo command:
member("your flash member").preload()
before using the flash movie? (if you haven't tried it already!)
