exporting printers from 2003 to 2008

I am trying to export printers from server 2003 to server 2008. Each time I try the export, it gets to about 3/4 of the way through and then stops and tells me it encountered an error. It opens the event viewer and there is nothing but an id of 70.
Not sure what the issue is. Any ideas would be great.
I am doing this all from the 2008 server via the print mgmt.
