Blender/Milkshape .tga Problems

Hi there guys!
So Ive imported a model into both Milkshape and blender, it’s a converted .mdl to .smd and according to the original owner of the model, the materials are located in the model. I find when I open the files through blender/Milkshape - I can see the models perfectly and I can also select the groups where the textures should be located, but there simply are no textures appearing. I can even see the .tga files - but it’s not rendering the .tga files. Is this a simple mistake and I’m being dumb orrrrr? Any help would be appreciated!!
