Import productsCSV problems

Hi everyone,

I actually have 2 problems with importing products in a CSV file into the magento site.
I did as I read, created a product manually, exported, followed that format and imported. The first problem I have is:
The images are not getting imported. I noticed for the product I created manually, the image path was the first 2 letters of the image name (i.e for example if the name of the image is example.jpg, the path was e/x/example.jpg). Now what I did was I uploaded all the images to the folder e/x/ and made the path e/x/ for all the products but that did not work.

I just want to know where I need to upload the products’ images and what should be their path in the CSV file.

The second problem I am having is with the size of the CSV file. The file I am trying to upload is around 8 MB and the size limit is 2MB. I read I had to change some limits in the php.ini file and .htaccess file but that did not work. Can anybody tell me what I need to do pleaseee…

I am struggling with this for the past 2 weeks without any use,,,,, if somebody knows a solution to this please respond

And I am sorry if this is a repost. I tried looking through the existing posts but did not find anything useful except for everyone saying they have the same problem......so please help meee

upload the images to the media/import folder, the path in the csv should be /image1.jpg

as for the 8mb csv file, just split it up to smaller files under 2mb and upload them individually.

Hi
Thanks a lot for the reply. I just did that. Actually, for the products in my website all 3 images for image,small_image & thumbnail are same. So I uploaded the images to media/import and made the path in csv:  /image1.jpg for all 3 columns image,small_image & thumbnail. But somehow only small_image is working and there is no image for image & thumbnail!!!

And also the html in the description is not working. Like, if I put <b>PRODUCT DESCRIPTION</b>, instead of bolding the text, it is actually showing <b>PRODUCT DESCRIPTION</b> in the description!

Do I have to turn on html anywhere?

I am pretty new to magento so please excuse me if my questions are too dumb but it is very confusing!!!

Thanks again
