I have problem...this pronlem is actual for 3dsmax users...
Maybe someone knows how i can merge objects,model from newest version 3dsmax in older (for sample: from 8 in 7 version)
I can make this with the export>import but this method has some problems...

Export them as an .obj file from max8 or whatever it also preserves your UV-map, then import them to where you like.

But then polygons are converted in triangles, and smoothing groups are lost...:(

Odd, Obj doesnt turn quads into tris on my side.

If you want to keep smoothing groups you could detach each group as their own object. When imported back you re-assign them to each object and attach them back to the main mesh.

You could also try .FBX format:
