CSV upload removing base image and thumbnail image when set in backend.
I managed to get it working by putting the images into the /media/import folder then putting the image name in your CSV file under the following columns - image, small_image and thumbnail in the format /myimagename.jpg . Then import the CSV file back into Magento.
As an alternative to manual import you can try to use this service http://www.file2cart.com/supported-carts/55-magento to import data automatically. I had used it, and the work was done pretty well
