PROC IMPORT with .SAV file?

I am having trouble importing my .sav file.  When I hit 'run' it just keeps running and doesn't actually process anything. 

My cod

proc import datafile="/folders/myfolders/myfolder/data.sav"

out=mydata   dbms=sav    replace ;

run;

Any quick fixes?

Try DBMS=SPSS instead of SAV?
