Why are some of my blocks the wrong scale when I insert them in AutoCAD 2008?

I have an extensive library of blocks that I created. When I insert them on some drawings several of them will come into the drawing about 50x the size of what the true scale of the object should be. What setting do I need to change to make sure all of my blocks are inserted at a 1:1 scale?

Note: the drawing style is architectural and both the block and the drawing are set to unitless.
This happens only on certain drawings and not with every block.

    I have run into the same thing. It has to do with the block scale. The only way I have found to fix it is to right click the block, then go the the block editor, then scale your whole block down. After closing the block editor, all the same type of blocks in that drawing should be correctly scaled.
