is there a way of getting dds files to work in XSI. I couldnt see anything on the nvidia site and my version doesnt seem to have it as a texture extension option.

Only version 5.1 has support for dds.
Time for an upgrade?

That is strange.
I presume you are using DirectX materials. Have you tried creating a new DX material from scratch or applying one from the addons section of your netview.
If that doesn't work, contact support...
you can use dds files also in xsi 5.0...
use the DXTextureFile node or the DXDraw node...
and install the http://developer.nvidia.com/object/cg_toolkit.html (http://developer.nvidia.com/object/cg_toolkit.html)
Notes on XSI Realtime Shaders support:
The most advanced types of XSI v.5.0 Realtime Shaders require:
OpenGL 1.5 compliant graphics card
Cg Compiler 1.4
DirectX 9c (not applicable for Linux)
Some of the older generation graphics cards may not support all the above and hence be missing certain Realtime Shaders functionality.
