The images in the scrolling panel are movieClips not buttons would this make a difference ?

as I...SIGH...

the panel(66+ ithumbnails) when I mouse over it scrolls but the thumbs don't work, no transitions, and not able to click each thumb to view the image .

Sorry for being real newbie.....

can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong/missing ?


Here is my xml:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<images>
<photo url="images/l1.jpg" caption="xxxxxx" />
<photo url="images/l2.jpg" caption="xxxxxx" />
<photo url="images/l3.jpg" caption="xxxxxx" />
<photo url="images/l4.jpg" caption="xxxxxx" />
<photo url="images/l5.jpg" caption="xxxxxx" />
</images>
My AS looks like this:
Code:
import mx.transitions.Tween;
import mx.transitions.easing.*;
//Gallery panel
panel.onRollOver = panelOver;
function panelOver() {
   this.onEnterFrame = scrollPanel;
   delete this.onRollOver;
}
var b = stroke.getBounds(_root);
function scrollPanel() {
   if (_xmouse < b.xMin || _xmouse > b.xMax || _ymouse < b.yMin || _ymouse > b.yMax) {
      this.onRollOver = panelOver;
      delete this.onEnterFrame;
   }
   if (panel._x >= 42) {
      panel._x = 42;
   }
   if (panel._x <= -1870) {
      panel._x = -1870;
   }
   var xdist = _xmouse - 400;
   panel._x += Math.round(-xdist / 11);
}

function myFunction(imgNum, scaleNum) {
   this['panel']['s' + imgNum].swapDepths(this.getNextHighestDepth());
   new Tween(this['panel']['s' + imgNum], '_xscale', Elastic.easeOut, this['panel']['s' + imgNum]._xscale, scaleNum, 1, true);
   new Tween(this['panel']['s' + imgNum], '_yscale', Elastic.easeOut, this['panel']['s' + imgNum]._yscale, scaleNum, 1, true);
}

var xml:XML = new XML();
xml.ignoreWhite = true;
var url:Array = new Array();
var captions:Array = new Array();
var whoIsOn:Number;
xml.onLoad = function() {
   var photo:Array = this.firstChild.childNodes;
   for (i = 0; i < photo.length; i++) {
      url.push(photo[i].attributes.url);
      captions.push(photo[i].attributes.caption);
   }
   holder.loadMovie(url[0]);
   caption.text = captions[0];
   whoIsOn = 0;
};
xml.load("image.xml");
