Radio buttons not filling when merged with new form

I have created two forms - the first should be copied into the second once completed. Everything is filling in correctly except for the radio buttons. Once we merge the two forms, the buttons either disappear completly or they just don't copy the answer. All of the names are the same and I have selected "Buttons with the same name and choice are selected in unison" under Options.

What exactly do you mean by coppied? Are pages from one PDF inserted into another. If this is the case then it is an unreliable way to copy form data. I'd strongly suggest using FDF files for this purpose, or getting a script to copy data from one PDF to another.  

Here is a script that does just that, but it is not free:
