You can open .mdb file with QGIS 1.8.0, but not all type of Geomedia feature class are supported. Add vector layer -> Browse -> select from type file "ESRI Personal Geodatabase [OGR] .mdb .MDB"

Yup, try that but with no luck, received error "invalid data source", but my GeoMedia file can be opened with ArcGIS with FME plug-in directly. – LUKIP Jan 17 '13 at 1:42
Try to explore on the Geomedia MDB database GDAL/OGR >= 1.9.0 page but have no idea how to start. further instruction and recommendation are most welcomed. – LUKIP Jan 17 '13 at 1:43
