Have a photo site with several swf slide shows. Swfs load great the first try in IE7 but don't load at all after that. Don't have this problem with Safari PC or Firefox PC.

Any ideas? Site was created in CS3 on a Mac.

how are you embeding the swf file?

Through the insert menu. I'm assuming there is something I need to do with the action code in flash. OR maybe have a way for IE people of download the newest flash player.

Sorry to get back so late, I found the site, http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/. Uploaded the js file to my server and added the appropriate code in Dreamweaver. Still having same caching issue with IE. SWFs load the first time but not after. Here is my url if you are interested.

I do call on swfobject on all the slideshow swfs. (At least I think I am) If you go to http://www.bobrughphotographs.com/1985-1989.html, this code is near the bottom of the page. Do I also need to apply swfobject to the flash text navigation buttons? Thanks for all your help!

<param name="movie" value="RFRUGH_Early.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
