trying to make copy of main site as a subsite

hi there!

i'm trying to make a copy of our main site to be translated into a different language (as another network site). we tried to make a blog template based on site ID 1, that wouldn't work. so instead we used a different site. now i'm trying to use the content copier to copy content from site id 1 to site id 25, and none of the content is coming over. any ideas why this is happening or what we can do to fix it? thanks!
