Loading 3ds model with texture


I tried to load a 3ds model which actually worked but the texture won’t load. I’m using 3dslib. I get a message in command prompt saying that the image format is not supported, and so the texture loading is skipped. I’ve tried loading models with .jpg and .bmp texture extension. What could I do wrong? Thanks in advance.
