Hi,
I can think of two possible problems:

1) Your data is not in BibTex format (or Refer format). If so, the
plugin would not find any data that it can understand, so no data
will be imported to greenstone.

2) Your collect.cfg file is incorrect. However, it sounds likes
this is unlikely - all you need is an entry saying
plugin ReferPlug
OR
plugin BibTexPlug

If you specify both, I think only the first one listed will be
used, as they are both trying to accept files ending in ".bib".
If you're not sure which format your files are in, try each
line separately.
