I am having trouble pausing an externally loaded swf file. I have used movie clip loader to bring in the file, but when i attempt to pause the clip, it does not pause. I can restart the clip, so I have the ability to communictate with the clip, but for some reason, it doesn't respond to the stop command. Can someone look at this code and tell me where I've gone wrong?



Code:
stop ();

var loadListener:Object = new Object ();

loadListener.onLoadComplete = function (mc:MovieClip):Void  {
	mc.play ();
}

loadListener.onLoadInit = function (mc:MovieClip):Void {
	mc.stop  ();
}

var mcLoader:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader ();
mcLoader.addListener (loadListener);

var mc:MovieClip = this.createEmptyMovieClip ("mc",this.getNextDepth ());
mcLoader.loadClip("12-openingHorizon2.swf",mc);

mc._x = 15;
mc._y = 35;

playButton_btn.onRelease = function () {
	mc.gotoAndPlay (1);
}

pauseButton_btn.onRelease = function () {
	mc.stop ();
}
