1. Newbie needs information about converting .lwo files to .3ds files to use with DirectX

I am a newcomer to the Lightwave/Inspire world, and have learned a lot from
reading this newsgroup when I can.  Thanks to all of you.

I bought Inspire 3D about a month ago to create models that will be used
with Microsoft DirectX, which uses .x files.

Microsoft supplies a program that converts .3ds files to .x files only.

I need to know how to convert .lwo files to .3ds files.  The doc mentions a
converter plugin, which I have tried.  But the converted .3ds file format
appears to be the same as that for .lwo when I look at it in Microsoft VC++.

Before I begin a project that will consume many hours, I'd like to know how
one converts .lwo to .3ds; so I don't end up with a .lwo object that can no
longer be converted to 3ds.

I would appreciate any help or advice.
