Are you importing to a site that does not have publishing features enabled?

If you want to, you can use gary lapointe's tools for importing. They handle most of the errors:

Check all the features that were enabled at the source site, even if you didn't use them!  That same set will need to be activated on the target site collection before it will fly.   If you are looking to just move some content, Gary (as noted by Koen) has good stuff, you might want to check out www.Xavor.com for a free tool.
