2D .dwg files to PDF

I am trying to convert some older 2D AutoCAD files to PDF's and PDF/E's. I am using both AutoCAD 2010 and Acrobat X Pro, but having trouble making the conversion while keeping the original attributes such as color and font, etc. I was wondering if anyone knew why this is happening.
I have tried the simple PDF maker way and plotting the file to a PDF. No dice.

Can you change your conversion settings to High Quality Print? (Adobe PDF > Change Conversion Settings in AutoCAD) The Standard settings may not store all your fonts and applies a color profile of sRGB, that may change your output color).
