Hello Steve

can you check the media path in the wp-config file
I am not sure but it might be one of the reason

you need to follow the steps from the following article to resolve it

You need to change the path. Use Search and replace plugin to replace the paths inside the posts.


Navjot Singh comments:

Ah. Sorry. Misread. Did you use the import attachments command at the new blog? It automatically grabs all the images and associates them.
