Media files issue moving between wordpress.com blogs

  1. I want to move entries from a wordpress.com blog to another wordpress.com blog

    I followed the instructions from http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/
    There says: "After you upload the file, you can choose the option to Download & import file attachments if you want to move your media files."
    Well, I never saw that option, instead said "If you exported your site's media files, we'll import those for you automatically."
    At the end of the process I received an email saying that "Your WordPress import was successful."

    Everything was done but the image galleries and slideshows are not showing in the other blog. Why is this happening? How can I export media files?

    In few words: Is there a way to export and import image galleries between wordpress.com blogs?

  2. "After you upload the file, you can choose the option to Download & import file attachments if you want to move your media files."

    That refers to the import file. When you import the export file there is an option and a prompt is provided that you can checkmark to answer yes to indicate your want the attachments ie. the media files (images) to be included.

  3. Thanks timethief, but is what I'm trying to explain:
    When I imported the export file no one option or check mark appeared, only the text:
    "If you exported your site's media files, we'll import those for you automatically."
    So that's my doubt:
    Why this attacments checkmark option didn't appeared?
    And why media files didn't was uploaded automatically as the message said?

    Thanks a lot! I hope exists a solution for this issue.

    In the past there have been problems with importing Galleries between blogs and I do not know to say if this problem has been resolved.

  10. Hm, there seems to be a bit more wrong here.

    Would you please contact us at support@wordpress.com with the details?

  17. hi, do you have any news ?
    I have the same problem, i have no option for copy media files between two wordpress.com blogs.
    Is there a issue with translation because i'm in french language ?

    thx

  18. hi, I have the exact same problem. there is no option to "Download and Import file attachments" rather I am simply notified that "If you exported your site's media files, we'll import those for you automatically."

    Unfortunately, my photos were not imported.

    I'm trying to do the same, moving a wordpress.org site to wordpress.com, but cant figure out hot to move media files.

    The import feature says it will send an email when the process is complete, I receive the email, but the posts are created with the original links (pointing to the old urls).

    Anyone have had success on trying importing media files?
