Basics: A PDF created on Windows platform does not show all button icons when viewed on the Mac (not sure what OS, probably OSX).

Illustrator V 7 Files created on a Mac, opened in V 10 on Windows 2000, saved as PDF, Screen Optimized, embedded fonts, no other changes.

The resulting PDFs were used as Button Icons on a PDF Document that started out as a blank page created from AI 10.

The PDFs were then added as pages to the end of the document.

Basic photo gallery type function. Clicking on the button icon takes you to the page showing the full size version of the art. A return button takes you back.
(Acrobat 6 Pro)

The problem:
When viewing on a PC, all is perfect.
When viewing on the Mac, some of the button Icons do not show up. The button functionality is still there, but no image.

File was saved with different options, all producing the same results. I used the File>Reduce File Size... option and saved at as V5 and V4.

PC using Acrobat Reader 4.
Mac Using Acrobat 5 (Full version)

What should I look for? Its difficult for me to test since I do not have a Mac, so I don't know the results till my client gets the file.
