Can anoyne convert a .lwo to a .ma or .mb or a .3ds?

What I tend to do is export .lwo as a .obj if I want to load it into Maya.

"File > Export" should give you a list of the converters you can use (DXF, 3DS and OBJ), or download the latest FBX exporters from Alias for LightWave as Maya supports FBX as well.

I've been using the FBX format to bring meshes from LW into maya. Works for me.
