The error message you're getting really is telling you what is wrong - there is at least one " mark in your csv that doesn't match up, and is breaking the format.

You'll need to escape the extra " marks in order to import them. I think it's just using "" instead of "

How can I find it?

The error message tells you what line is failing, although the character reference might not be that helpful - it's often "the next thing I couldn't read" instead of "where you've got something wrong"
