I'm running 32bit XP, could that be the issue?
They do have some hatch patterns, but nothing insane. I've tried it with drawings w/out hatch patterns and I still have the same problem.
I could plot to EPS, but I still doesn't solve the problem. I also need to be able to convert an entire set of drawings to PDF to distribute to consultants.
At one point it was migrated, then I uninstalled it and reinstalled w/out any migration.

HP plotter is on this network, PDF plotter is on local machine
It's now 4 machines in our office that don't work.
However, if I use the "dwg to PDF.pc3" it seems to work and is editable in Illustrator. Now if I can just get my batch plotting to work...
My computer just started acting up. It has started to take 5~6 minutes ot open the plot dialog box, then that much time or more to complete the plot. 11x17 sheets, not that I see how that would affect it.
In Windows 7 it appears to be locked up. There is very little happening in the Task Manager either. I hope it doesn't spread like the post a few posts back.

It's running poorly off the hard drive. I placed my files local to try and rule out network issues.
I believe this is a problem on the AutoDesk / AutoCAD side of the equation, not Adobe - though I cannot verify this to be true.
I have a similar problem: I can plot to PDF totally fine using page sizes "Letter" and "11x17". However, not to ARCH D or E or any other larger page size. I get a blank sheet with the "educational" use tags on the edges. To Letter or 11x17 ,no problems.
