Converting Coordinates to decimal degrees

Hi, I am trying to overlay layers on top of an image from Google earth.
The Google earth using the WGS 1984 geographic coordinate system, and I defined there in the 'tools' option to decimal degrees. I noted the degrees of four points of the area in Google earth which I wanted to use in my project, and with the Georeferencing tool placed the image of the area that I wanted from Google earth on my ArcMap project. In the ArcCatalog I have changed the layers properties, which I wanted to use, to the same ones of Google earth. My problem is that when I try to overlay the layer on the image it doesn't convert the layer coordinates in to the same ones of the image. And so, I cant overlay the layer on the image. I noticed that the extent of the layer is deferent than the one of the image. Can someone tell me how can I overlay these two layers?
Layer coordinates:
Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_WGS_1984
Datum:  D_WGS_1984
Prime Meridian:  Greenwich
Angular Unit:  Degree

Layer extent
Top: 363757570.5
Left: 696914.08
Right: 708387.16
Bottom: 3628739.22

Image coordinates:
Spatial Referrence: GCS_WGS_1984
Linear Unit
Angular Unit: Degree(0.0174532925199433)
Datum: D_WGS_1984

Image Extent:
Top: 32.839264419
Left: 34.9492452471
Right: 35.0111527328
Bottom: 32.7839784712

Tahnk you
