Problems with Importer and Media Library

    As requested by dllh, this is in reference to:

    We are trying to migrate from this .com blog to a .org installation.

    We have successfully exported the database via the Export option. I have tried repeatedly to import the content to numerous different installations (including a local installation with massive memory limits set) and the import gives up when the option to transfer images is checked. The main column in WP just stays blank (sometimes I get an unable to allocate memory error message – asking for over 2gbs). When I look in the Uploads folder, about 70 of the 568 images from the media library are uploaded. Each attempt downloads the same images then gives up – regardless of memory allocations.

    If I try to import with the transfer images option unchecked, it returns a list of (seemingly) all the images, with a ‘failed to transfer’ message. It does import all the posts though.

    Can you shed any light on this?
