Help ID 11002 - DDS textures are not allowed
Help ID 11002
"DDS textures are not allowed: "filename" convert to TIF and replace!
In rare cases DDS textures caused problems with wrong Alpha or completed wrong colors.
To avoid possible problems remove your DDS from scene and use TIF instead.
Use Asset Tracker of 3dsmax to replace the files in question.
Where you will find the Asset Tracker in 3dsmax 2013 and 2010-2012:
Choose the ".dds" file to replace.
Rightclick it and choose "Set Path...".
Choose the converted file (if just the suffix changed, e.g. from ".dds" to ".tif" you can change it in the "File:"field).
