Sound problems - new instance of sound starts each time a button is clicke - Macromedia Flash Sitedesign

Everything in my site works fine, until the navigation buttons are clicked a few times, then the background music restarts and plays over the music that is already playing, sometimes creating 3 or 4 instances of the same music all playing at different times.

    Default Sound problems - new instance of sound starts each time a button is clicke

    Everything in my site works fine, until the navigation buttons are clicked a few times, then the background music restarts and plays over the music that is already playing, sometimes creating 3 or 4 instances of the same music all playing at different times. Any one have any idea why this is happening?

    I do have a music control (start/stop) button: it's a movie clip with 2 frames (the first with music and the second to stop all sounds) that's embedded into a button symbol... This sound control MC is placed in keyframe 46 (there are no more keyframes on this layer after this one)

    the nav buttons only have gotoAndStop("corresponding_frame"); so whichever frame you're at, clicking on a nav button would bring you to a certain keyframe in the range of 48-55 (each layer has one keyframe in each of the frames from 48-55).

    You can check out the site at [url]http://www.bol.ucla.edu/~lynette/flashtesting/testintro.swf[/url] to get a better sense of the problem.

    Thanks for any insight into this...

    umm, I'm not sure, but mabey try having the sound on its own layer, and make sure the sound type is set to stream or start (I'm not sure what start is, but the same thing happened it me and i put it onto start) this way i should matter what buttons are pressed and where the movie it.
