When I remember correctly, ambconv is slightly buggy.
I have a working version here, but in the case of Amber8 you have to 
modify the amber output file a bit, to get it working.
After that, it works quite nice.
Nevertheless, I would suggest using the sorin port of the amber FF. It 
works also quite nice so far and yields similar results like the ambconv
