Magmi Won't Import Images from media/import folder

I have setup the Image Attributes Processor to read from media/import. I’ve watched the video and on the image file names it appears you don’t need a / before the image name (slightly different from the normal Magmi). My import goes just fine except for images, which it states it cannot read from that image search path.

I’m stumped.

I’ve attached my csv if anyone can help, I’d appreciate it.

Permissions on the media folder were set to 777, not 755.

I’m never getting that time back in my life…ever.
