I seem to be having a problem… a couple of years ago I modeled and rigged a 1930’s frig and stove..I rigged them in poser and when I loaded them in to Daz Studio 3 they work just fine… If I want to load them in Daz 4 Pro, they do not load at all..can some one help me with this… will I have to re rig them in 4 Pro for them to work… I hope not… don’t know how to rig in daz…. these were rendered in Daz 3 cant get them to load in to Daz 4 Pro

Did you use a light with its own shader tree in the PZ3? DS3 skipped those, but DS4 chokes on them.

I wouldn’t have thought you would need to re-rig anything, the issue is more likely to be the .PZ3. Can you go back to Poser or DS3 and save them separately as a CR2 rather than a .PZ3?

A question: since you created the scene in Poser, do you have a PMD file associated with the PZ3? DS4 is known not to load PMD files; to make that work, you would have to load the scene in DS3, save as a scene with the PZ3/PMD injected, then reopen in DS4.
