I don't know.  I tested the DataGenie tab here and it created 
instances.  Are there any errors that are output to the Protege console

which is distributed with Protege, or version 2.0.1 from our Wiki

(, you need to 
use version 2.0.1 if you want it to process foreign keys.  If DataGenie 
doesn't import your data in a format that is acceptable to you, you 
could instead use the Protege API to programmatically import your data.  
The API is documented on our Web site:
