Import Contacts to Windows Live

What the Hexx goes with Windows Live importing contacts?

I have been using Outlook Express for email since about 1995. I thought, time to update. So I am trying WIndows live. I exported my contacts, about 400 or so, to a cvs file. It took a few seconds. I imported it to windows live. It took over four hours and I got duplicates of every item.

What the Hexx? I have imported these contacts into Outlook on my desktop in just a few seconds.
Is live supposed to be an improvement???????????
