Why MOSS2007 Content Import Fails?

And another discovery about SharePoint 2007 content deployment. You should be aware of forbidden file types. When making mass import of content then import fails when it finds forbidden file type. All files after first forbidden file will not be imported. I don't know if this blog entry has some value or not but maybe I will save somebody's time about hours or days :)

What error message do you get?

I'm getting something new as well - this is with SP1, post SP1 and KB950279...

'An object of the type Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.Administration.ContentDeploymentJobDefinition named "ContentDeploymentJobDefinition: Remote import job for job with sourceID = f3fa7bac-f7f2-403b-bec9-22d32d5196ed" already exists under the parent Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebService named "WSS_Administration". Rename your object or delete the existing object.
