MDT2007 assemblies to Solidworks2008 conversion

What have you found to be the best procedure to convert MDT to SolidWorks?

If I open the files in MDT and then open the main assembly in Solidworks, I lose all linear arrays, some fillets, and I don't know what else on my part files. This was following the procedure listed in help.

If I only open the part files they convert ok. This would mean I need to open the assembly, then go back and individually open each detail and overwrite the original file created when I opened the assembly. This gets time consuming since it won't let you bulk open the files. It requires a next then finish selection for each part.

Also if I open an assembly that has parts in a seperate directory below the main directory, can I set Solidworks to input the converted files back in this directory or can it only put those files in the same directory as the assembly?

Any help would be appreciated.
