I would suggest that you 
(1) Remove all your copies of csv.pyd
(2) Install the csv module properly by following the instructions on
Dave's website (i.e. briefly, you unpack the distribution into a
directory, and then run
(3) If you still have a problem, post a message that shows
(a) what version of Windows you are running
(b) what version of Python
(c) your windows path 
(d) your Python path (import sys; print sys.path)
(e) what you get when you run Python (at the DOS command line!!) with
-v and try to import the csv module
(f) what the MS depends utility says about

Another thought: I found I had a python22.dll (dated Oct 2002, must be
from Python 2.2.2) in my c:\WINNT\system32 directory and one dated May
2003 (must be from Python 2.2.3) in my c:\Python22 directory ... don't
know how that happened; puzzling ... I've killed off the older one.
You might like to search python22.dll *AND* msvcrt.dll and ensure that
you are using the latest.
