Hi,
it doesn't matter, which file format you will use. Look here for some of them:
www.wotsit.org
The files *.x are of ascii format, so you can open it with notepad and you will understend its structure,
And look here:
http://www.xdsoft.com/explorer/
this is program, which converts some very big amount of different formats.

I don't have a reference to check against, so I'm just pulling this from memory.

I beleive you can create a MeshBuilder object, and from that object you can call a function called Load() with a couple of the parameters being the filename ("scene.x") and a flag saying that the Mesh is being loaded from a file (something like D3DMESH_FROMFILE). Sorry I can't be more helpful or provide source code, but that's all I can remember right now.

You can get the tutorial through the Direct X SDK Documentation + examples and through MSDN Library
