You should try downloading points from the loadstone point share exchange. 
The osm data has been integrated in to our data so you won't need the 
converter. Trying to fit an entire country in to a loadstone database just 
isn't going to work, the data would be too big. Using the point share you 
can select the region or regions you actually need making the data small 
enough to fit in to the database.
