I am having real problems with certain DWG files that other consultants send me. When I import the DWG, once it starts the process it just crashes DataCAD completely.

Does anyone have a solution to this or encountered the same problem?

Kind regards

Are you opening it directly or are you importing it into your AEC file? As I recall, long ago Clay recommended that you open a DWG file directly in its own AEC file, and then either cut-n-paste the entities into the drawing you want it in, or save it out as an AEC file and xref it in.

Are the DWG files from consultants that may be using add-on packages that utilize Proxies? Are the problem files only from one consultant/company?

Just spit-balling right now.
