One of the first things you should look for is how your fields are named. Although Excel will allow you to put anything in the first row, ArcMap does not. If you have any special characters or spaces in your field headers ArcMap will not read it. Also look for spaces at the beginning and end of your field headers.
Can you submit a screenshot of a csv that does not load. We may be able to point out where the error is occuring.
I can't send a screenshot of the data as it's part of ethically protected research. However - I may have answered my own question. I just tried two ways of making a csv file - changing the extension and "saving it as" - it won't load if I change the extension to .csv, but it will load if I "save as" .csv. Does this make sense?
