Import/Export Issue - import reports success but does nothing.

Why when i export products, update prices and a few descriptions, and re-import products does it report completed successfully but in actuallity it doesn’t change anything. (Prices are the same, descriptions are the same, nothing has changed.)

I’ve tried this with firefox/IE8, with cache enabled/disabled. I’m using a csv file from excel (the same one i exported and updated) that is verified before upload via magento v1.5.1.0

Any thoughts as to why this isn’t updating prices / descriptions like it should?

Edit: it doesn’t seem to be reporting success any more when i Check Data, now it just hangs on that.
