    the image files may be set to files on your hard drive instead of web ready.

    What I mean is instead of something like this ../image/whatever.jpg,
    the files are linked like this C:/webpage/image/whatever.jpg

    Check this, it happens sometimes with Dreamweaver, usually dreamweaver will catch it and solve this problem, but not always.

    just open one of the web pages,

    click on an image, and click properties,
    In the properties box it will have a location of the file,

    if it looks something close to this (C:/webpage/image/whatever.jpg)
    you need to change it so it will be web ready, which will mean giving it a location without being exact. so it will look something like this (../image/whatever.jpg).

    Hope this helps.

    You can also alter the code in the html section of Dreamweaver (the one that shows all the coding for the page in html). Just scan down the page looking for the path code which directs to places on your hard drive (e.g. C:\Files\File.avi) and replace them with the path to the uploaded file on the server (e.g. http://www.geocities.com/YouName/File.avi). You might be able to use search and replace or select the image switching to the code window to highlight the paths and make it a bit easier.

    Try using a 3rd part counter (e.g one from bravenet.com or counter.bloke.com). Sign up and then paste the html code into the dreamweaver page (in html code window). They should work for geocities but you will have to put up with an add/link if you use them.

    If I were you, I would start looking for a new hosting provider, because Geocities aren't very good.
