Error sync contacts from BB to windows

I' have a BB 9700 and I want to sync my contact with windows contacts using BB desktop software. I have over 1400 contacts in the BB and when I try to synchronice I get the error:

<< Synchronization Error

Error while updating record. >>

There is no other description of the error or any error code. When I look in windows contacts I have only 583 items so I'm missing 900 contacs that weren't able to synch.

I'm using windows 7. I know is probably an error with one or more contacts but I looking one by one over 1400  contacts is too much. Any ideas?
