You may need to copy your project folder into a folder called "dswmedia".
Then save and make the dcr's. Just look up dswmedia.

Thanks for the suggestion Timm.
I had already set up a dswmedia folder, and all my project files are in that folder on the local machine. And indeed when I launch the shockwave file on the local machine it works fine.
However the problem comes when I am uploading the files to the remote server.
Has anyone else had this problem? I am really frustrated by this.
I have tried renaming the cst files, reopening the dir movie to force the movie to reattach the external casts, but it still does not work.
I really don't know what is going on... but have not ruled out a simple error on my part, so please feel free to suggest some really obvious things to try!
OK, I have now got this working, so thought I would mention what I did in case it will help anyone else.
I am authoring on a windows xp machine, and the whole project was in a folder in my My Documents folder, and several subfolders further in.
I have now created a new folder in the root of my harddrive (C:\directorproj\dswmedia\client\stages) and copied the entire project into this folder.
Not sure why this has worked, but it has. So I share this incase it helps anyone else.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
Awesome! Good work figuring it out!
