I've been googling this for a while and haven't been able to find anything (blenders importer does not work). How can I import a .x file to 3D Studio Max? There are heaps of resources in converting formats readable by Max to .x but not the other way around.

If you download Milkshape, you can import the DirectX file and export it as a Collada, Fbx, or Obj, which can be imported into 3DS Max.

It doesn't have an option to import .x files... – zombinee Nov 1 '10 at 3:02
It should be on the top menu bar, under Tools -> DirectX Mesh Tools... -> Import .x file – Ari Patrick Nov 1 '10 at 3:22
