Repaints Not Showing Up In FSX

I bought the B-52 but was unable to find any .dds repaints to add through the ACE livery manager so I had to manually install them all. Ive manually installed a ton of liveries on many different aircraft so I know how to do it. So I add all the liveries - and none of them will appear in the FSX aircraft selection screen. The only paint that is available is the default grey one (the only one showing in the ACE). I have tried everything I can think of. Does anyone know a trick to this? Thanks.

I know that a long time ago, I often converted the BMP texture files to DDS files, but I no longer have any liveries, other than the default grey one, on my B-52.
Unfortunately, any of the liveries I may have converted were lost due to a HDD failure on the drive I had them saved to. Sad

Many of the links to liveries are no longer available (i.e. Nathan Phillips), or are on Avsim, but I find it strange that the textures would be BMP, and not DDS.

Note. Nearly all of my Captain Sim aircraft only have default liveries in FSX.
