Flash file not working on server, works locally (USA Diamond Map)

I have a flash file app downloaded off of the Internet. It is a map of the USA with connections to xml files. This is working great with all my data locally but I've tried uploading it on multiple servers and it does not work remotely. Is there something glaring that I am missing (code below). I have not renamed any files, I am embedding this code as is from instructions. I have uploaded all html, xml, and swf files (in the same folder area). Thanks for your help.

<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />
<param name="movie" value="usa_diamond_map.swf" />
<param name=FlashVars value="xmlfile1=diamond_map.xml&xmlfile2=data.xml"> 
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />

Try changing your embed section
from: <embed src="usa_diamond_map.swf?xmlfile1=diamond_map.xml&xmlfile2=data.xml" ....
to: <embed src="usa_diamond_map.swf" FlashVars="xmlfile1=diamond_map.xml&xmlfile2=data.xml" ....

I recommend you to visit http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/ - the best the way of embedding flash :)

Best,
