I guess you used swfcombine? If yes, you probably should use the --cat
However, a I guess a more promising approach might be to instead write a 
swfc script which loads each .swf file into a seperate frame and then
forwards to the next one once it's finished.
Together with sound, this will look something like this:

.flash name=combined.swf fps=50

    .frame 1
        .sound sound1 sound1.mp3
        .swf file1 file1.swf
        .put file1
        .play sound1
    .frame 2
            if(file1._currentframe < file1._totalframes) {
    .frame 3
        .stop sound1
        .del file1

        .sound sound2 sound2.mp3
        .swf file2.swf
        .put file2
        .play sound2
    .frame 4
            if(file2._currentframe < file2._totalframes) {
        ... etc ...

For images, the frames will look like this instead:
    .frame 5
        .sound sound1 sound1.mp3
        .png image1 image1.swf
        .put image1
        .sprite file3 # just for the delay
            .frame 50
        .put file3
        .play sound1

with the "50" controlling how long the image is displayed.

Hope that helps,
