I am using the Node Export module to migrate thousands of nodes from a Drupal 5 site to a Drupal 6 site, and it is working really nicely except for one thing: It systematically fails to import my CCK image field and I get the following error message.

Unknown error occurred attempting to import file: [path to file]

Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

Are the images already in the directory in the new site? For most import modules, the images Have to been in the directory before you start importing.

  • Thank you, I think that may indeed have been the problem.
