I am trying to process and display a KMZ file in arcgis.

I extracted the KMZ to KML with an online converter.

I tested these new KML files in Google Earth Pro and they display fine!

I the tried to bring one into ArcGIS Explorer and they are all messed up...

I try and convert KML to Layer and they are still all messed up.

Attached are the images of what I am seeing and a copy of one of the KML files.

Anyone know whats going on...it displays in Google Earth fien but not ESRI products

Hi 

The problem could be in the conversion process.  In the KML file was missing others values.  Attached the File corrected.

HOW did you correct it...I have a bunch to correct if this is the case

UPDATE....Here is a point file...not sure what has to be done...

Can you tell me how you fixed the Line kml and how to fix the point kml?

Hi

Yes it was that i did.

The process that i did was the following:

1. I converted from KML to KMZ (using Google Earth Pro)

2. Using Data Interoperability Extension, i converted the KMZ to KML

3. Comparing the two files (the oldone with the newone), i noted that i needed to add 0.0 in the coordinates.

i suposed that the inconvinient was in the conversion that you used to generate the KML file.
