Maemo Mapper actually *always* uses its own offline map tile database,
it just adds to the database automatically as needed when it's set to
auto-download the maps. You're making it harder than it needs to be.
Just set Maemo Mapper to "auto download" the tiles (Main
Menu->Maps->Auto-Download), then pan and zoom around in the areas you
need. When you're done, disable auto-download and you're ready to go.

I suspect that if you've downloaded the maps with other software
they're missing information critical to Maemo Mapper.
