I investigated an electronic document management system
which produced the same results you mention: no pictures.

Turns out that because we LINK all pix in Word, the pix would
not show up: the DocMan system couldn't resolve the internally
coded paths to the pictures, since the system used it's *own*
paths, file & folder naming structure. Experiments with
embedding the pictures showed this overcame the problem.
We did not purchase the system because we didn't want
to modify 10,000+ documents!

Do you link the graphics in your Word docs? If so, that may
be your problem; try embedding to see if that helps.

BTW, the system I was looking at was Docushare.
