Default FrameMaker Cross Platform Question

Hello -
I am currently working on converting a technical manual from FrameMaker 6.0 on a UNIX platform to FrameMaker 7.2 on a Windows machine. I haven't encountered any problems with the text portions of the book, but the graphics are another story! The figures were created using CorelDRAW 12 and were exported as .eps for the original book, but the quality of the figures is severely degraded on the PC. I have tried other formats (.jpg, .gif, .wmf, .tif, and even .png), but to no avail. The manual is distributed in both print and PDF format. The PDF displays well on the screen, but I would really like to see better quality in the FM working files.

I came across a thread from last summer dealing with a similar issue - importing Corel files into FrameMaker, but using an .eps format did not solve my problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
