I am working in Version 12.5.2 and cannot seem to import a very important set of DWG files.

I get "OpenDWG Error 8"

"This DWG version is not supported"

The files were sent in whatever version these architects work in, then at my request AutoCAD 2000.

Still no luck.

What might be happening here?

The Open DWG Error 8 means the version of the file is not supported by the import. I suspect the files were not exported, and you were sent either an AutoCAD 2007 or 2008 file.

I would call your associate back and ask for a 2006 or earlier dwg file.
