Part 1 - Importing songs and sounds the right way

Ok, first thing, we have to import a song, by selecting File > Import, and then selecting the song. Now hit Window > Library, and find your song in the library. Right click on it and hit Linkage. Click export for actionscript, and type in a one word name, that you will remember. Now uncheck Export in first frame, if your game has a preloader. If your game has a preloader (which is recommended), you have to make a new frame between the end of the preloader, and the beginning of the game, and then add your sound to the frame. without doing this, the sound will not be recognized by actionscript, because it is never exported in the movie. if you check Export in first frame, the preloader won't be shown until the song is loaded. by doing both these things, you're exporting the song in a later frame than the preloader, so the preloader loads, and the sound plays. Go to part 2 to play the song.
