How did you include CM in these diagrams? I think the font-name is
different from anything available on you new machine, and the fonts are
not found. Can you include these diagrams in a ps printout on your old
machine? That should take care of the inclusion, and from there on the
conversion can be done.
You could generate a series of single-page ps files (don't forget to
remove the number) and use that as a basis for further processing.
