It should work to import multiple cards. Can you try however how it
works if you just import one card? IC/VC should be able to handle the
vCard 3.0 format, you can use that as a start.

Things which can go wrong are e.g. the encoding of the vCard file
(Unicode vs. ASCII etc), or some malformed data which causes IC/VC to
skip the data completely.

If you cannot even import one card, can you create a dummy card and
send me the vCard file?
