I don't know why MS abandoned interfaces IDirectXFileXxx. I know the new ID3DXFileXxx are nice , but I just can't make a match between the two seiries interfaces(and their functions).Even the DXSDK does not give much surport about it. Is there any tutorial or article about this? thanks for your replay.

What are you trying to do?

The ID3DXMesh interfaces are a convenient framework for transporting and rendering mesh data once it's been loaded. The IDirectXFile interfaces (etc..) are more for manipulating the raw .X file data - manually loading/parsing it or possibly transforming it.

Yes they are related, but they're for subtly different things - which is probably why you can't find a direct relation between them.
