Once copied to your HD you may need to change the attributes from "read only"

I am getting the source and destination cannot be the same.

Attributes are not read only

I am now getting as far as importing Personal folders to Personal folders clicking finish, but nothing is imported.

Use Explore and drag and drop the file into

C:\Documents and Settings\<Your name>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

According to your setting the <Your name> part may be Administrator.
