I am having a similar problem. I am trying to export/import from my old wp blog to a new one. Not all of my posts are showing up at the new blog. There are about 4 months missing. I went to the new blog, deleted all the imported files and tried again. this time it did import more of them, just not all, still maybe 2 months missing. The other problem is that the new imported posts have a different id number because I deleted the first set of imports. I should have a total of 133 posts.

Rain can you help ethansmama? I couldn't and no one else popped in for this one.
I'm afraid I don't know ANYTHING about imports. The only advice I know is to be sure to empty the Akismet file before exporting, otherwise the spam jams up the pipes somehow.
Akismet File??? I don't have that, that I know of. REally less worried about the id number on the posts, just want them all there, w/o having to copy paste manually, but that's where I'm headed.
Akismet is your spam. Delete it all before you move.

No blog urls have been posted.
So, does "my old wp blog" mean that it's a free hosted wordpress.com blog or is it a wordpress.org blog. If it's a wordpress.org self hosted blog then post to http://wordpress.org/support/ to get help. If it's a free hosted wordpress.com then you need staff help and you need to give them details.
I have the same problem. I originally imported my blogger site to wordpress.com, with no problems. Now I am trying to migrate my wordpress.com to my own server (still using wordpress as the blog editor), and when I import it, only the posts that originally came from blogger (posted in January and Feb 2007) are showing up. None of the posts from wordpress.com (sept 2007 through today) are importing at all.
I emptied my Akismet spam filter and that didn't solve anything.
When I opened the xml file in WordPad all of the posts seem to be there. When I tried deleting the section of the file that had imported and then re-importing the file, it imports a few more and then stops again.
When I press the import button, the screen goes blank. I hit refresh and it pops up with "do you want to continue? Yes/No". I hit yes, and the screen goes blank again. I hit refresh and nothing happens.
How large is the XML file, size wise? I think there is a 2mb limit. If it is over that, you might have to break it up into smaller pieces.
The XML file is 285k
