I have looked online, but can't seem to find anyone else who has had this problem. I have reinstalled the software and still the same issue.Nate

Without providing specifics as to exactly what happens (i.e. <exact & complete> error messages) - impossible to provide any kind of guidance.

Questions/observations

#1 - What kind (format) of PST file are you importing to - O'97-2003 or native O'2007?

#2 - Is it always crashing on the same contact item? (i.e. do the same number of contacts get imported each time?). If yes, eliminate the record in the CSV file that immediately follows the last successfully imported item

Alternatively, delete all the successfully imported contacts from the file and repeat the exercise. Try getting them in in batches.
