Try using the CVSNT-supplied co.exe and modifiying line ~1115 from
cvs2svn.py, taking out the "-q" in the line that uses co.exe:

    pipe = os.popen('co -q -p%s %s'
                    % (cvs_rev, escape_shell_arg(rcs_file)), 'r')

Also, make sure that %CVSROOT points to your repository. After that, it
worked for me (before that, I had the same symptom: empty files).
