Magento Uses a CSV file format for import and export for products. This CSV file format contain the optimize the attributes, edit & export, import the data. According to me disallowed file type error is comes with flash type files in xls format .if you have any flash type files,just move to the media directory and then update the links. This allows to Tools->configuration, click on the interface and set the Unloadable Flash type files

big surprise Oh, God. It is really very problematic!! I, personally, use csv tongue wink to import data.
So, what i wanted to say. Recently I found an extension that can do exel import. You can check it out.
