In my Flash Im using getURL to call out a picture file (a pic file is nested in a folder i stored in a webserver)

I typed
"www.mysite.com/folder1/folder2/file1.gif"
for the getURL command.

When I published it and tested it on the net INSTEAD it goes to

"www.mysite.com/www.mysite.com/folder1/folder2/file1.gif"

which is an error.
what did i do wrong?

thanks in adv
