Problem importing a 3DS model


I tried to import a 3ds model but i got the following error message :Header length doesn't match up: End ID#:7c80 len left to read=-2088078682 parentID#=4120. Does anyone knows what the problem is ? How can i  fix it ?

Thanks !

could you post the code snippet which you use to load the model?

Until recently, the 3DS ChunkerClass didn't behave nicely when using non-ASCII characters in object names. This is fixed now - try using the latest CVS version, or be careful not to use such characters when creating 3DS models.
