What is the error exactly.

Based on earlier experience, I think this might be a FAQ (the usual  
pdflatex vs latex + ghostscript). Based on that assumption:

pdflatex (the default latex engine for TeXShop) can not read eps  
files. There are now two solutions.

1a. Convert the eps file to pdf by dragging it onto the TeXShop icon,  
and just store the resulting pdf file in the same location as the eps  
1b. Load the figures engine in latex with \usepackage{graphicx} %% do  
not specify a "driver"
1c. Insert the figure with \includegraphics{figure} %% do not specify  
the extension.

2a. From the "Typeset" menu select the item "Tex and Ghostscript". 1b  
and 1c still apply (i.e. no driver, no extension. This will make your  
document portable across the main two engines).
