Hi! I'm trying to download data from this particular site: http://www.openstreetmap.org/export#map=17/11.24875/125.0047 I get the osm file and them import it with QGIS 2.0.1. The program says the import has been succesfully done but when I open it with QGIS 2.0.1. only points appear to be there. No polyons, no lines. I'm sure there's something I'm not doing correctly, could anyone help?

When you view the downloaded OSM file, does it contain lines with "<way="? If yes, then the data is present in the OSM and the problem has to do with QGIS.

A while ago QGIS suffered from a serious bug. In theory, it shouldn't affect your version, but maybe you are using unintentionally the outdated plugin instead of the trunk feature?

that was fixed in QGIS 2.0, so it shouldn't be the issue here.

I would recommend you download the data directly through the QGIS OSM plugin. I believe it is included by default in 2.0+. Then go to Vector > OpenStreetMap > Download Data. Include the bounding box values and name for the file. Then add the file as a vector layer.

Maybe you also want to try shapefiles created from OSM data: http://www.geofabrik.de/data/shapefiles.html
