When batch plotting a drawing set to a D size plotter, I get the error message "The current device does not support the requested media size." I can plot each sheet individually just fine, and even batch plot the set from a coworker's station. Can anyone help with this.

Solved! by cd86. See the answer in context.
I created a new template to use with my existing page setup and it fixed the problem. Didn't change a thing in the template, just copied and renamed it. Works fine now. Weird. Thank you for your help!
I use the batch plot icon at the top of the window. I add the sheets I need and select the page setup for our Oce plotter that I've always used.
I'm using AutoCAD 2012 on Windows 7.
Always used with XP and now are on a Win 7 OS or always used with Win 7 OS?
If Win 7 is new OS are your Plot Drivers up to date?
Oce have anything to offer?
Check that your printer driver is up-to-date, like Charles said, and then check your page setups. Many times when a publish fails, it's due to something being wrong with the page setups. Run some tests with brand new drawings.
I recently started working on a new machine with Windows 7, previously was on XP. Driver is up to date. I can batch plot just fine to our HP plotter and Savin printer, just not to the Oce. The error appears to be with importing the Oce page setup template, but I can't figure out where I'm going wrong.
Try uninstalling and reinstalling the Oce driver. Maybe it didn't go in right the first time. Be sure to right-click the installer EXE and choose "Run as administrator" to install it. It is probably good to turn off UAC too, just in case (if you haven't already).
Run some tests with brand new drawings, with page setups set to the Oce driver. This will tell you if the problem is coming from your existing drawings or templates.
