Non annotative Blocks disappear when inserting old drawing

I have a drawing with some annotative blocks.  ie Block name "BAR'.


If I insert another drawing (mostly old v2000 files) as a block which also contains blocks named "BAR" (which of course are non-annotative)  the Blocks do not show up.  


Is there any way to get arround this?  Idealy I would like the old file inserted and have the annotion scale of the blocks in the inserted dbg set to the current scale.


thanks for any help.

You cannot have two different blocks with the same name in one drawing. One of the blocks must be renamed prior to inserting the old drawing.
