Media attachments have always worked fine in my experience. There are  
some serious problems with the exporter and importer in 3.0, though,  
so this might be one of the bugs. Are you  checking the XML file  
produced for attachments, or just checking what comes in on import? If  
it's the latter, make sure you have import attachments checked on
