Importing attachments into media library does not work (2 posts)

    I am dealing with big and painful migration from typepad to wordpress.

    Hosting: rackspace cloud
    WP: 3.0.1
    W3TC: 0.9.1.3
    All work is done on this type of url: http://www.mysite.com.php5-16.dfw3-1.websitetestlink.com/
    Since my production site is on typepad and I can switch DNS to wordpress when all migration and testing is done.

    I managed to download all the images from typepad and migrate all the posts.

    My images are in this format in my posts

    <img alt="Patent" class="asset asset-image at-xid-6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c " src="/.a/6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c-400wi.jpg" style="width: 400px;" title="" />

    When I try to use "Importing attachments into media library" function, I get sometimes fails errors or sometimes I get nothing (I tried multiple times), sometimes it will load 20 images. I tried running for over 24 hrs still no luck. I have over 8k images.

    Also, I tried not to change image urls and leave them on typepad like this

    <img alt="Patent" class="asset asset-image at-xid-6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c " src="http://mysite.typepad.com/.a/6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c-400wi.jpg" style="width: 400px;" title="" />

    In hopes that Importing attachments will work, nothing happen.

    Lastly, tried Modify Attachment URLs, I put the following as my domain http://mysite.typepad.com
    Nothing changed code stayed the same as below

    <img alt="Patent" class="asset asset-image at-xid-6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c " src="http://mysite.typepad.com/.a/6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c-400wi.jpg" style="width: 400px;" title="" />

    ____________________

    I am trying to troubleshoot and figure out appropriate path forward.

    1. Should I just change all my image urls and point them to upload directory. like so.

    <img alt="Patent" class="asset asset-image at-xid-6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c " src="/wp-content/uploads/.a/6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c-400wi.jpg" style="width: 400px;" title="Patent" />

    this way I do not have to deal with the whole importing issue.

    I am just wondering if by having relative url I would not create a problem when I need to configure CDN and move my images.

    2. Anything I need to know in order to make Importing attachments work with W3TC?

    3. Should I use this URL http://www.mysite.com.php5-16.dfw3-1.websitetestlink.com/ to my images and not relative URL and then later change it to my real domain name. see example below.

    <img alt="Patent" class="asset asset-image at-xid-6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c " src="http://www.mysite.com.php5-16.dfw3-1.websitetestlink.com/.a/6a00e55225079e340134865025d6970c-400wi.jpg" style="width: 400px;" title="Patent" />

    ____

    Any tips and advise is much appreciated on issues above.

    With over million visitors a month, 4k posts, 8k images I am taking huge jump moving and migrating to worpress. But as far as I see typepad is DEAD and migration is the only path forward.
