Some programs like IntelliCAD and TurboCAD claim compatibility with AutoCAD, but 100% compatibility is not possible. You may loose certain elements in the transition. For better compatibility you want to consider AutiCAD LT which is the cheaper version of AutoCAD. It has most of the features with limitations on 3D functions.
