You can download 'ABC Amber EPS Converter' to convert them to images. Don't know about to dwgs.
I have some vector EPS mapping files. Is there any way I can import them to AutoCAD ADT 2005 for editing?
They are quite large files too: I have tried using illustrator to open them an then export to DXF/DWG but illustrator usully crashes through extreme memory usage.
EPS files are rasterized versions of autocad drawings. Even if you could open them in autocad, you wouldn't be able to do anything with them, other than look at them. You will have to convert them to be able to edit them.

I'm using AutoCAd 2002. A client has sent me an eps file. I want to edit it with AutoCAD. I have downloaded the EPS converter program. Now what?
What file type do I convert (export?) it to? And what is the best way to insert/attach/whatever into AutoCAD?
Convert it to a image, and I would attach it as an image and scale image after you've inserted it.

I did that, actually. I inserted the file as a raster image and scaled it perfectly. Problem is, I can't edit it and it comes out very blurry. I adjusted the quality some and it helped but it still looks blurry.
Is it even possible to edit this file anyway?
Thank you for your previous quick reply, by the way.
I don't believe you can edit the file. I just plotted off an EPS to see how to insert it and I had to open the file into photoshop and save it as a JPG. and scaled it. No matter what I believe you will have to redraw it. Sorry I couldn't help.
Actually you did help. Now I don't have to keep trying different ways of inserting it in order to edit it. Thank you very much.

Google Gsview and download it. It might do the job for you. Once you open it, go to Edit menu>Convert to vector format and convert your EPS file to dxf. You will have to rename the converted file to whatever.dxf. Then you can open and edit it in acad.
