How to import private keys - BitcoinWiki

Can I import my own BIP32 wallet into Bitcoin Core?

Let's say that I've created my own BIP32 extended private and public key. Can import these (or only the extended public key in order to create a watch only wallet) into Bitcoin Core? I understand that Bitcoin Core now uses BIP32 behind the scenes to generate new addresses. Or am I forced to only using HD wallets created in Bitcoin Core, alternatively importing separate private keys?

Migrating from core wallet to bitcoin.com wallet. Why can't I import my old wallet?

Hello, I'm trying to migrate from one of the old core clients (I think it was bitcoin Knots) to the new bitcoin.com client.
How do I import my old wallet? I've got my deposit address and my private key, but the bitcoin.com client is asking to import a bunch of shit I don't have, like a 12-word phrase or some kind of pre-exported backup file. Shouldn't I be able to just use my address and private key?

How do you import a Bitcoin Core (QT)-made wallet.dat file into another wallet?

So I have a wallet.dat made a while ago and wanted to check what was in it, problem is it was made in the bitcoin core QT client, which I can't even load up because it occasionally freezes and usually won't even sync up, at an absurdly slow rate.
When I replace that wallet file into the default data directory, and start bitcoin-qt.exe with the -rescan command, it just starts but no addresses show up in my wallet file and i noticed the wallet.dat file size changes when the bitcoin core client starts up, seemingly modifying something to make it slightly bigger, don't know why.
How do I check this wallet.dat? I tried importing it into the latest electrum 3.2.3 wallet and it won't accept it.

I am searching for an Android Bitcoin Cash Wallet that can import (or sweep) a private key (WIF) from a Bitcoin Core cold storage paper wallet.

SOLVED. The app "Coinomi" did the trick (not import, but sweep, which is ok for the low network fees...)
(btw, also works for BTG)
Any recommendations / tips?
Actually "import" would be preferred over "sweep", but since Tx Fees are so low with BCH, also "sweep" is acceptable for my use-case.
What I mean is entering (or sweeping) my own single private key* (legacy WIF format as we know it from paper wallets**), and NOT entering my own determinsistic 12-word-mnemonic seed.
For the following Bitcoin Core wallets I am aware that they support it - but I am looking for a Bitcoin Cash Wallet that can do the same:
The following Bitcoin Cash wallets cannot do it:
Oh - and I'd like to enter the private key manually via text, not via QR code scan, if possible (because I only have the private key ("5.....") in text form and don't want to convert it to one of those QR code generator online websites, for obvious reasons). (removed, because bitaddress.org used offline serves this purpose to convert priv key (text) to QR code)
PS: If anybody also knows about BTG for the same question, I'd be interested, too, obviously.

Bitcoin Core doesn't create a default folder for my wallet.dat....So how can I import my long-lost-but-found wallet.dat?

Found a long-lost wallet.dat file. I've downloaded the blockchain on BitcoinCore/Bitcoin-QT, which I originally used to get some BTC many years ago.
Trying to get this wallet.dat into my freshly-downloaded BitcoinCore, but not finding any default save locations. Other threads have mentioned to just overwrite the default wallet.dat, but there isn't one. I'm running OSX.
Others have mentioned looking in the Users/Library/... folder, but it's not there.
Thanks in advance! Levorg

Import bitcoin and bitcoin cash from pre-split Bitcoin Core wallet

Hello all,
I need some help importing bitcoins from a Bitcoin Core wallet to the Ledger Nano S and also claiming bitcoin cash. The core wallet is a pre-fork wallet and I did not yet claim the bitcoin cash coins. What I'm unsure of is the order of importing and splitting. Is the following the right way:
Is this safe and sound?
Thanks for your help!

I purchased 2 bitcoins four years ago and never thought about them again. Now I reinstalled Bitcoin Core. The transaction is shown in my Bitcoin Core Wallet but balances is at 0. I still have the old wallet.dat and imported it to the Bitcoin program folder. How can I get access to my bitcoins?

Hey guys,
As stated in the title, I wonder how I can solve the problem described in the title. As written, the transaction is shown as successful and I never spent any of the Bitcoins. It would be awesome if you could help me, getting my coins back.
This is what is written in the Transaction details:
Status: 0/unconfirmed, not in memory pool Date: 09.04.2013 12:20 From: unknown Credit: 1.98269540 BTC Net amount: +1.98269540 BTC
Thanks a lot !
PS: Sorry for my bad english, German guy here :)
Update/Frustration:
Thanks everyone for your kind help! As the syncing process is going on, the good news is: My BC are now displayed! The bad news is: I am 100% certain of my password I chose, when I first secured my wallet. But now it always says: walletpassphrase incorrect.
I will now use this guide http://www.gobitgo.com/articles/1005/How-To-Recover-Your-Bitcoin-Wallet-Password/ and try to recover my pw as I know the most parts of it. Maybe I get lucky and can recover it. Wish me luck :)

Is there a wallet planned to allow for me to import my bitcoin core dat file, like other forked coins, so that i claim 1: 1 ratio, after the upcoming fork? I have already the new ZCL Wallet and it worked to receive my ZCL from Bittrex.

Best way to export wallet from Bitcoin core and import to something more sensible

I still have an oldschool wallet and haven't been paying much attention for the last 2-3 years. Would like to switch to something more sensible like Electrum or Jaxx as the blockchain size is getting too crazy. Is there a good tool that allows me to import my Bitcoin Core wallet without having to make some new transactions?

Importing Bitcoin core QT wallet into Electrum

I was asking on /bitcoin how to access my Bitcoin core QT wallet without downloading the ~160Gb blockchain and was advised I can import the Bitcoin core QT wallet into Electrum. Can I first confirm that this can be done? I also would like to know how to go about it? I was also told that since I have had the coins for several years thatI should be able to claim bitcoin cash of about 10%? Can I do this and how would I go about this? Does importing the wallet into Electrum affect this in any way?
I also saw this:
https://www.reddit.com/Electrum/comments/7ighpo/what_is_a_watch_only_bitcoin_address/
Does this mean that I can create a Electrum wallet, just put in my public key and check my balance?
