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.
