[PostGIS] Geometry is not recognised

Dear all,

I am completely new to Data Interoperability Extension and try to create a new connection to a PostGIS database.

So far I have managed to create a connection within ArcCatalog and to display the table in ArcCatalog (see attached screenshot). Apparently, it even recognizes the geometry (column SHAPE), but nothing is displayed if I choose the "Geography" preview. Similarly, ArcMap doesn't even see the layer.

Is there anything that I might have forgotten?

For info, I am using ArcInfo 10.0, PostgreSQL 9.0, PostGIS 1.5, Windows 7

Thanks a lot in advance and best regards,
