Try Kaydara's (www.kaydara.com) free FBX plugs...

You would need to install the 3DS plugs on your windows platform, export it (see documentation) to the FBX file format.

Install FBX for Mac for LW, and import it...

Now, I've never tried this cross-platform, and I don't use 3DS... however other conversions I needed it for have been very fruitful, so I'm pretty sure it can work for you...

The plugs are free anyway, so it's worth a shot, right?
