I am trying to load blp file of world of warcraft. I do it in the following steps: 1:read in the header from blp file 2:read in the data from blp file according to the header 3:create texture according to the blp_header info 4:lock the texture--copy data into it--unlock. It works but I wonder if I am doing the effecient way? I wonder if D3DXCreateTextureFromFile work the same way: load data-->create texture-->copy data. thx in advanced.

The current way you are currently doing it is correct. However, rememeber that the textures from World of Warcraft are copyrighted and using them in your own game/project could get you in legal trouble.
