I have been trying for the last 6 hours to import my Examview quiz into moodle 2.1. I have tried the same way I added in 1.9. I have watched a million and one videos and every help topic I could find on the forum. It wil import the file on the server, as a blackboard and I can see the file, but when I try to upload the dat file into the question bank, I keep getting the same annoying error "the type of file you have selected (document/unknown) does not match the type expected by this import (text/plain). I am using a free hosting service mdl2.com and I can not add modules of pluggins. The instructions to upload the fix for this are way over my head, and I don't think that I can change the server files. I really need this to work as I have 240 chemistry students. It worked great in 1.9 and I have put an incredible amount of work into this already including giving the kids the information and an assignment. Would appreciate ANY help I can get.
Sorry to hear of yor frustrations.

Renee, have you tried to check it out with the folks at mdl2.com?
Thank you, I have tried all of that and I think that my hosting service is missing the plug in. It is a free service that is hosted by two spanish men in spain. I have solved the problem by simply importing the quiz into my old moodle site that had very limited storage and exporting it as moodle XML. Works like a charm when I import it into my new moodle. The site says that they have updated to moodle 2.1,but I think it is still at 2.0 which judging from the moodle docs is difficult at best if not impossible to import Examview into.
