DWG files can contain a lot of data that is not created by AutoCAD, but by some AutoCAD Add-On. When you open such a file in Archicad, those elements created by AutoCAD Add-Ons may not be visible, or they may give a warning or error message.
This is why I am asking what the message/report is. We might be able to figure something out based on that information.
