I'm not a user of memoir (usually use the article class and dislike memoir's emulation) but I have a couple of comments about your preamble.

Recent (at least TL2011 but, I think, even TL2010) the graphicx package automatically loads epstopdf. Also there is no need to use --shell-escape since the graphicx package runs a restricted version of the epstopdf program but that won't allow for any additional inclusions (e.g., tiff->png). With TL2012 it becomes pretty easy to add additional conversion tools to the list of ``approved'' programs for the restricted shell escape; see the TeXLive2012Changes document available at <https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10932738/index.html>.

The \synctex=1 command is not usually needed with TeXShop (from the leading lines I assume you are using TeXshop as your front end---true with TeXworks too) since that is set by default when calling pdflatex.

Good Luck,
