Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies
You doesn't say what application and OS versions you have, or if the printer is shared from a server or connected locally to a workstation. This is signifcant to solve the problem. Please clarify.
To make this work properly, all machines should have the HPGL driver and all drivers should have both the "Autorotate" "Inked Area" boxes ticked - both under General > Printing Preferences > Advanced AND under Advanced > Printing Defaults > Advanced.
Then you should create a paper size that is as wide as the media is wide, and longer than the longest/widest paper size you're ever going to print (6-10 feet long is OK!) - BOTH under Printing Preferences AND under Printing Defaults. This will ensure that every "odd" paper size (within media width limits) is printed without problems.
If the printer is installed on a server and shared, these settings should be done on the server - and the driver should be reinstalled on the workstations. If not, these chanvges should be done on each workstation that has access to the printer over the network.
When using older versions of AutoCAD you might have to reinstall the printer there as well for the changes to take effect.
Note: This solution has worked successfully over several years while working at HP support. The suggestion about the looong paper size may sound strange but it works!

I have a HP 650C, I just bought a Parallel to USB adapter on Ebay. It can plug straight into a computer and then be shared. I also have network card on a HP 750C+ and have it connected straight to my router through an Ethernet connection and it works fine.

SOURCE: max file size 450c can plot ?
You should have no trouble with the unit as additional buffering will be done in your PC if necessary. These units are a one pass rather than a whole page at a time.
