Hi Naoki.
You don't need an instance name unless you are using TellTarget.

It should work if you have placed the MC in the over frame. Is there a
graphic on top of it that's covering it up? You don't ordinarily need any
labels or actions for a MC to loop. It will loop as long as the mouse is
over the button. Have you tried placing the MC on the main timeline to see
if it plays correctly there? Last thought: double-click the MC in the
button and make sure its behavior is selected as "movie clip." If it was
not originally created as a MC, this would be the cause of the problem.

These are guesses. I could more easily find the problem if you would ZIP
the .fla file and post it at a URL so we could download it and check it out.
