Hi,

I am new to magento.

I have been trying to load products with images into my new magento installation via th import Dataflow profile.

The products seem to be loading fine but the images are not loaded.

I’ve tried different image locations and paths in the csv but nothing works.

All the advise online did not work for me (might be for older magento versions?)

Your help will be greatly appreciated,

Sofy

Hi Sofy,
so, once again, the checklist of what you should\’ve done
1) FTP\’d your images to media/import folder
2) In your csv you provided your images like \"/image1.jpg\"
3) you\’ve set correct writing permissions on the folder with images
4) There is enough free space on your FTP

Here are some other tips on image import problems:  http://bit.ly/UXzvqF
However, best of all would be to tell more details, as there can be thousands of reasons here.

..another question is are you getting errors on the product images or just no images are assigned to products at all? Are images seen in the Magento backend and not in the Magento frontend or vice versa?
