Problem transferring from wordpress.com (5 posts)

    Hi everybody,
    I face many problems transfering the content from an wordpres.com blog to my own domain.
    Indeed, no problem to export the content from the "old" blog, but, when i try to import the content using the worpress importer, things go wrong.
    When i tick the checkbox to download the attached media and then click on import, the site is loading. After a loooooooooooooooong time my web browser tell me that the website does not respond anymore. Then i refresh the page and my back office is telling me "are you sure?" with no chance of giving an answer.
    I thought i had a solution because when i repeat the operation, month by month, the operation seem to work. But i realised that some media were duplicate and their ID were shifted. So the image linked in my posts are not correct.
    Is it a known problem? Does it come from wordpress.org or may it come from my server (Timeout...)?

    Thanks in advance for your help and your indulgence regarding my english.

    Around 9M but there's approximately 3000 picture.

    The number of pictures isn't an issue at this stage as the image files themselves are not part of the export file but the sheer size of the export file is an issue. Try splitting the file down into >1M chunks
