    Typically "Media already exists" messages are displayed when the images have already been imported. Have you been attempting to upload the XML file multiple times? If so, check your Media Library to see if those media files have already been added.

    I deleted all the existing media and re-uploaded the file. I am now just getting a blank screen that says "Import WordPress" and nothing more and my computer is no longer "waiting for everybodylovespretty.com"

    Should I just keep waiting?

    It seems as though I am unable to upload the media from my last wordpress site... Is there is size limit or something? Instead of getting a confirmation that my upload was complete, I just get a blank screen. Is there another way for me to upload my images?

    Is the site that you are copying from still a live site?

    No the site was down. Turns out there was just a ton of files to download so I had to keep uploading the file until all the images would load. Problem resolved!
