I use Motion builder and when I try to import an fbx file back into LW I get a message saying that the plugin is not supported. It works in 9.0 however any comments.

Autodesk did not develope anymore FBX pluging for LW or XSI. They release the SDK. Newtek have to work's on it...

thanks for the info, NT has not changed their attitude toward FBX in several years, and I use MB for a lot of my major character motion.

Did you try to convert your fbx 7.5 file to fbx 5.3 the old fbx format.
Then try to import it inside LightWave Layout.
I hoppe this could help a bit.

I ran a test and it worked for me, only I am just merging the fbx back in rather than importing an FBX. I do the same as you....fbx for character work...but I just bring the skeletal data back and merge it in. Can you tell me your workflow.....? Maybe I can recreate the problem.
