impression doesn't import some of the blocks

I'm using autoCAD 2009 and Autodesk Impression 3

there is one constant problem I have. When I try to import a .dwg file into Impression, it sometimes simply don't import all the layers, usually it do not import some of the blocks but do import others, I really don't understand where could be a problem. And when I try to get those blocks by "update CAD geometry" a message pops out saying
"Some of the associated DWG layers for the Impression layers you have selected are now set to be off, frozen, or turned off for plotting. Do you still want to refresh cad geometry from these layers?"
But when I open the file in CAD, these layers are all on, non-frozen and not turned off for plotting either. I hope you can help me with that.
