Hi Andrea,

I second Alberto's suggestion to use fbx when working with 3dsmax. 
Latest OSG versions are finding the latest FBX SDK versions correctly 
and the fbx plugin is built properly. At least, I can confirm this for 
Visual Studio on Windows.

You did not write details about your code and therefore we can give you 
high level tips and tricks. Did you start with the example
