Excellent for large sites
By , for WP 3.9.1

Using this plugin to migrate attachments worked like a charm. The only problem I saw, were some missing images due to the fact that upload was made by a user who is no longer assigned to the specific blog in a multisite.

I don't know what to say other than it didn't work... didn't upload any of my attachments. Failed over and over again.

Works great for when you don't have access to a DB Dump

My client I developed a theme for was moving off a managed hosting solution. Since it was super cheap hosting he didn't have access to anything just the WXP export. Crisis averted with Attachment Exporter. Good show!

Did not work for us
By , for WP 3.8.1

Sadly this did not work for us. Error message was "there were no attachment files found in the import file". Only wish that were true. We have links to about two dozen images in the WXR file, and it doesn't seem to be able to pick out any of them.

Great for importing WXP files with lots of attachments
By , for WP 3.8.1

When trying to upload the demo content for a WP theme with the standard WordPress Importer as well as most of the other importer plugins around I always ended up with a lot of errors and a messed up database because there were too many/too large media files attached to the WXP file.

This plugin saved the day: I just uploaded the xml file, but without the attachments. Then used Attachment Importer to fetch the media files afterwards. Done!

The plugin needs a couple minutes (in my case almost half an hour), depending on the number of media files involved. But is simply works. Should have tried this in the first place. Would have saved me hours of trial and error.

Great plugin. Thanks for this, man!
