Try letting Flash generate an html page and use the embedding code that it creates rather than using Dreamweaver.
Thank you! I finally figured it out a solution!! I saved the swf as a flash 10.1 document rather than the pre-set 10.2 and am happy to report that it worked. I've been able to view it on an imac and a windows device but it still doesn't work on an ipad. The only solution I can think of for this is to have a link at the top of my page that says " ipad and i phone users click here" --- and the link would be www.mysite.com/idevice"
where there would be an exact replica of my page minus the annimated banner OR with a version that would be viewable on an I pad/phone.

Flash is not allowed on an iPad (or iPhone, per Mr Job's decree). You will need to detect that there is no Flash Player and have a substitute for those cases. I have heard the "swfobject" provides a good detector. Google it.
update to this solution: until I figure out how to use html5, I've simply replaced the code that says to download the newer version of adobe flash with a jpeg non-moving version of my banner. This works and since my swf bannner only runs once, the only down side is that ipad users don't get to see the animation but other than that, they have the same experience.
I've ran into the same problem. DW is setting your swfversion check to 11 for some reason.
<param name="swfversion" value="126.96.36.199" />
I changed this to 10.2 (since that's what I compiled my swf for), and it worked.
<param name="swfversion" value="10.2.0.0" />
The question at this point is, why does DW 5.5 set 10.2 to 11?
Dreamweaver set the swfversion to a version compatible with its release.
You can change it by select your swf in dreamweaver design view, click on Parameters button under Properties Panel, and change the swfversion.
