(an eps file created with Illustrator 10 will not print).

If an eps file doesn't contain the "showpage" command, it won't print on
any printer. It is this command that tells the printer to actually put the
image on a sheet of paper. Without, the printer will process, but not
print the image. eps is a format designed for inclusion in other files, so
eps files do not need to contain a showpage command. (Some do, others
don't). So just try to include it into some other file; if your image is
properly printed, the eps should be considered O.K. If it can be converted
to pdf, that would also suggest that the eps file is good.
