Are you pasting these copied frames into a blank space in the new movieclip or are you trying to insert the copied frames into a space in the movieclip that is populated with content? If its the first option, then the copied frames should paste into the open space in the movieclip.
I just realized of my error. I was trying to copy to a new symbol, but without selecting the frame, since it was a new frame, i tried to copy directly to the stage but without selecting THE blank frame itself, Thank Rob,
