Problems importing products from old magento-site - freezes

I am porting around 200 products (books) from an old magento-installtion to a new installation on another server.

I have 3 product attribute-sets. One for books, one for CD’s and one for posters.

The posters and CD’s import fine, but the books do not.

I know that I need to re-create the product-attributes on the new site in order for the import to happen.

When I chose ‘run profile’ (import all products) it simply stops after importing 1 product:

Starting profile executionplease wait...
WarningPlease don't close window during importing/exporting data
Starting Mage_Dataflow_Model_Convert_Parser_Csv :: parse
Found 157 rows
Starting catalog/convert_adapter_product :: parse
Processed 0.7% 1/157 records

After this it stops.

Any suggestions as to what could be wrong?

Please help, as manually importing 150 products would take several whole days of work.
