ArcMap 10.1 Crashing when trying to add a DWG

This question has probably already been asked but I could not find the answer. I am trying to add a AutoCAD drawing into ArcMap version 10.1 and when I do it just sets there and spins with nothing happening until I force ArcMap to close. We have contacted the Engineers and had them save the AutoCAD DWG to a 2000 version, however that has not solved the problem. As far as I can tell there is nothing different about this DWG from others I have added today.

Does anyone have any experience with this problem?
