I need to build a plotter file to HP1050C through AutoCad 2007, (which is longer than 1999 mm - so I have to customize paper size.
In order to do so - the program has to recognize this plotter's driver.
please help me to find the wright driver to install into the programe.

It is probably the belt is going bad or the slider rods are dirty. Turn off the cutter and see if everything works ok, which I suspect it will. Check for small bits of rubber inside the plotter where the belt runs. If you see pieces, it is the belt that is fraying. Clean and lubricate the slider rods should also be done.
This could be one of a number of things. The file being sent must be smaller than the total memory of the printer. Connect the computer directly to the plotter with a parallel printer cable and see if it prints. If you are using an OS newer than XP, try using the XP 32 bit driver. If you are printing from AutoCad 14 or older, upgrade AutoCad (newer uses Windows printer drivers). If you can print OK with the parallel cable, get new external JetDirect software from the HP website.
If you are using Windows Vista OS, then you know that you do not have the complete drivers that should make all the features of the plotter work ok. It is recommended that you go for XP or 2000. That way, better results including fonts are achieved. Remember also that this model is old and may not really work very well with all the features in Autocad 2009 Version. You can try the plotter on a machine running on 2007 version. Good luck
