Plots Getting Cancelled - Still

Where to start?  I have posted a message previously stating that my plots and prints don't and I get a flip down that  states "Errors and Problems" found.  I did the "Repair" sequence and that temporarily helped but I still got Cancellations.  I have done everything that I know to do and I even re-installed my AutoCad 11 ( that was a stupid, but desparate act).  Of course I had to reconfigure everything and also lost my menubar and status bars.  Did all of that help?  I got one plot approved and that has been it.  AutoCad is not sending the data to the plotter or printers including the fact that I can't create a PDF.  I can send data from any other program and get it printed, just not from AutoCad.


My plotter is a HP Designjet 500.  I have 3gb of memory. 


I miss the menubar and the status bars.  I detest the Ribbon and can't understand why anyone would come up with that except as an option.  Reinstalling V.11 was a huge mistake.

Do you have the latest drivers installed for the designjet 500?

What operating system do you have?

The designjet 500 is an older type plotter.

You say you can't create a did you try to create this PDF?

What PDF printer are you using....Cute PDF or something similar?


There are so may things that could be wrong I don't know where to start to get you going.
