I'm using WordPress Importer, and I can't figure out how to import media only? It ends up importing menu's and everything and I don't want that.

You can customise the WP Importer Plugin to export only attachments.

There's a pastebin with a custom Importer Plugin ready to be used: http://pastebin.com/RVBQ7icG

Go to WordPress dashboard > tools > export > media > select date range. Default exporter and importer.
