First: Please read http://www.pdftex.org/README; your mail would
probably better be a bug report. But then we need more
information: Which pdfTeX versions are you running?

epstopdf works for most people.

Since you don't tell us which pdfTeX versions you use, we can not
know if this has been fixed in recent versions. If you are using
1.30.5 on both plattforms, please file a bug report and attach
the eps and jpeg to it.

See above.

convert: Invalid colorspace type (CYMK).
