Can't import files

Hi there

I have a problem with DOM import function - I can upload only images, not the files. When I'm trying to import files, all checkboxes are inactive (see attach).

Where could be a problem?

SS 2.3.3
latest DOM build

The import function respects your setAllowedFileTypes() list, so anything that isn't in there will be greyed out.

Thanks for your answer. Yes, it was related to "setAllowedFileTypes". It was uppercases, because that doesnt work:

$Media->setAllowedFileTypes(array('MOV', 'MPG','AVI','FLV', 'MP3'));

Changed to:

$Media->setAllowedFileTypes(array('MOV', 'MPG','AVI','FLV', 'MP3', 'mov', 'mpg','avi','flv', 'mp3'));

and now everything works perfect!

Ahh.. thanks. I should remove the case sensitivity. I did for uploads, but I guess imports got overlooked.
