 I have a couple of wallets that have about .25 btc combined total.

 The majority of the balance is unspendable outputs received from a certain website where you can earn for referring people.

Soo I read on the forum that if you import your private keys into mtgox that it will fix the problem and the btc would be spendable and located in my mtgox account. So I dumped the private keys for every address in the referral wallet and imported them into mtgox.

  Every private key I entered came up with the response that the wallet was empty and it might be a typo. Besides that message it seemed to have accepted the private key because if I tried to resubmit it would tell me it was already uploaded.

its been about 15 hours since I uploaded them and nothing has seemed to change....and my mtgox account is still empty

any thoughts?

Out of curiosity, try sending a reasonable amount (e.g., 0.01 BTC or above) to an address that you have already imported to your Mt. Gox wallet.  If that gets swept but the "dust" doesn't then you have your answer.

[Update:

From another thread:

18:02.47 ( @MagicalTux ) must have been some changes with the new version of bitcoin
18:04.19 ( @MagicalTux ) we have a project that will solve that, I guess I'll have to push it sooner than expected
18:04.59 ( kakobrekla ) any eta on when these get credited?
18:05.57 ( @MagicalTux ) I guess we have created the txs, but it's stuck in the transfer queue because bitcoind randomly refuses connections
