I had the same problem, external cast (.cct) not recognized as a Director file. In my case the problem was a mime type issue. We use a third party hosting company. This company defined the most basic shockwave mime type (dcr) but they left off everything else (see the link below). The result was shockwave apps would run only if they were completely self contained, if they linked to any external Director based media we got the error above. Fortunately, our ISP had a simple control panel for adding custom mime types. We added everything on the list and our problem went away.
Thank you so much "AppliedCD" for your input. Unfortunately, we don't have a system administrator here in the office, so can you please tell me the steps involved for this change ?, The server is a Windows XP 2003 Server Edition. I know you may not know the answer off hand, but if you do get them, please post them here....

XP or Server 2003?
I just followed the MIME type additions found in the link given, and configured the server. We run XP 2003 Server Edition, and IIS 6.0. The site works fine now.
