You are obviously using pdflatex.  Then try
  print -dpdf espectro.pdf

in order to create PDF directly, which is supported by pdflatex.
Works like a charm for me.

If you want to produce both, DVI and PDF (i.e. run latex and
pdflatex), then create both, EPS and PDF

  print -deps espectro.eps
  print -dpdf espectro.pdf

and remove the driver options from \usepackage.  Replace




as suggested by Heiko already.

Just for interest, who or what made you believe that you have to
specify a driver explicitly?  A book?  An online manual?  I'm
wondering because automatic driver selection (almost) predates the
Imperium Romanum.  I'm wondering why so many people go the most
inconvenient way.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
