Hi rob,

I would recommend too that you compact twice your Hc stacks in  
HyperCard before importing them.
 From the docs:

When you open a hypercard stack from within Revolution, the stack is  
automatically converted into a Revolution stack.  Almost all  
hypercard stacks can be imported successfully. If you have problems  
importing a hypercard stack, check the following:

* If the hypercard stack does not appear in the Open dialog box, make  
sure its file type is "STAK". hypercard sets the correct file type  
automatically when it saves a stack, but if a hypercard file has been  
transmitted over the Internet, it may have lost its file type.

* If an error message appears when you try to open the hypercard  
stack, make sure the stack has been compacted. To compact a hypercard  
stack, open it in hypercard and choose "Compact Stack" from  
hypercard's File menu. Then try opening the stack in Revolution.
