If the stacks are in the old 1.0 format, they won't import. You'll have 
to open them in HC 2.0 or later and choose "Convert stack" from the File 
menu. That will fix them.

That said, there's a bug in the current release of Dreamcard/Revolution 
that prevents opening HC stacks. The problem has already been fixed, and 
will be in the next incremental release which is due out any time now.
