I'm trying to import a CAD .dwg drawing into ArcMap 10.1. When I added the .dwg to ArcMap it did not show any data.  I spoke to an ESRI rep and they said to explode the drawing, purge and resave the drawing to a different drawing.  I did that and it did not work.  Does anyone have any other suggestions.  Thanks, Chris
