Why doesn't function MM_showHideLayers() { //v9.0 (from DW CS3) work with pages created created in DW 8?

I upgraded DW8 to DW CS3.
I reopened some files from my site and while adding a few more layers, the program removed the older versions of javascript an replaced them with new ones which don't work. For example CS3 replaces
this js with the one below it
--------------------
function MM_showHideLayers() { //v6.0
  var i,p,v,obj,args=MM_showHideLayers.arguments;
  for (i=0; i<(args.length-2); i+=3) if ((obj=MM_findObj(args[i]))!=null) { v=args[i+2];
    if (obj.style) { obj=obj.style; v=(v=='show')?'visible':(v=='hide')?'hidden':v; }
    obj.visibility=v; }
}

function MM_showHideLayers() { //v9.0
  var i,p,v,obj,args=MM_showHideLayers.arguments;
  for (i=0; i<(args.length-2); i+=3)
  with (document) if (getElementById && ((obj=getElementById(args[i]))!=null)) { v=args[i+2];
    if (obj.style) { obj=obj.style; v=(v=='show')?'visible':(v=='hide')?'hidden':v; }
    obj.visibility=v; }
}
So, why won't version 9.0 work in this page? It works in pages that have fewer instances of showHide layers. I have removed it and reinstalled version 6 and it works again, but when I make an addition to the page, it re-inserts version 9.0 Is there someplace in CS3 I can go to change the fact that CS3 will update these pages to version 9.0  on its own?
Thanks

Hi mvanthof,
and thanks for that. I found it and opened it,   I also went back to my copy of DW8 to compare that file to CS3's copy and they are identical. So I don't know why CS3 inserts v9.0 instead of v6.0. and how to fix this.  In the meantime, I'm just reinserting v6.0 in the <head> and it i working.    I'd like to ask Adobe, but they are functionally useless past purchase.   Thanks for your idea.

Search in your adobe CS3 dir for MM
there are some directories called MM one of them  contains the script so you can adjust.
