Within a movie, if you mouseover a button, another
clip plays (spinning DVD). However, when you continue to mouseover
the button and reach the spinning DVD inside the button, it
disappears. When you click on the area where the spinning DVD is
suppose to be at, it appears and will be allowed to be dragged and
dropped into a DVD Player to launch a movie clip (flv). Why does
mouseover a clip make it disappear when it is visible during
mouseover the button? The spinning DVD is inside the button area.

therefore the odd appearance of the disk when you roll over its

There are many ways of proceeding so if you need more info, let me
