you need not attach loadMovie() code to a button. your 2nd line of code is fine.
if you have a movieclip on your main timeline with instance name mc1, and you have a swf file named whatever.swf in the whatever sub folder of your _level0 html, then whatever.swf will load.
if you want to control whatever.swf's timeline AFTER it completes loading, reference _root.mc1.
Thanks so much for the help. It still isn' t working though. I have a button that goes to my frame 'About' when clicked. On the 'About' frame, I have a movie clip instance, coloured grey, to load the slideshow into. But when I test it, the slideshow doesn't load, and the movieclip instance doesn't appear either - it's grey, and it just shows the black background. This is the code on my 'About' frame, in the actionscript layer.
I have a folder in the root folder called 'slideshow', which holds the 'slideshow.swf'.
Any ideas on what the problem might be?
what do you mean by "..it just shows the black background"? the black background of what?
if you test your swf in the flash test environment you'll see an error message if that path/file name aren't correct. if you don't see that message then your gray movieclip is being replaced by slideshow.swf. perhaps there's nothing on-stage in your swf's first frame and there's a stop() in that first frame?
