          ASC was pretty kludgy in 2005; it is better in the newer versions.  I would typically get a message like this when I import.  At first I started going through and fixing the ASC (usually a character missing, or a misplace end of line, or an illiegal character), but then I realized there never seemed to be anything missing from the design.  These errors always seemed to come up in some redundant text. 

           

          So I suggest completing the import and seeing if your design looks like what you expect it to look like,  If there is an issue, hopefully you'll catch it with 'Verify Design...'.
