How to import older K3D models ?

as I am looking into archives (circa 2005) of datasets, I ran into .k3d files. I downloaded k3d software, only to find out that those files are not supported by the current version of the modeler.
What I want to do is to convert those files in an open standard format - COLLADA - so I can archive the files in a format that I will always be able to open in the future.
I seems that K3D has a COLLADA export features, so how do I get those older files into K3D modeler?
Note: this is a serious business need, so I will consider offers to do the conversion for a fee.

How to import older K3D models ?

Hi,
Do you happen to know what version of K-3D they were created in? I don't know if it was written to file back then, but with the right sequence of K-3D versions, it might be possible to translate (newer versions should at least load the previous version). Then again, maybe at some point there was a hard breakage of compatibility. It would be helpful to see one of the files, if it's not confidential.
Cheers,
Bart
