Default Where's the textures?

I have a little problem.
I want to export a model from Google SketchUp to Autodesk Maya 8.5. The format that I am using is OBJ.

I imported the model in maya but the model doesen't have texture. How can I import the model with textures?

Please help!

Obj's dont have textures. You need to set up a file node in maya and attach that to the material

Go into the hypershade, create a material, create file node and drag the file node to the material and connect it to the colour map, then load up the texture in the file node.
