Autocad 2000 - Problem printing in size B

I have autocad 2000 installed in a MS Windows Xp Profesional. Autocad in set up to print in a network printer (HP LaserJet 8150 PCL 6). When choosing the paper size B to print, prints on a letter size paper instead of the big size paper (size B). Printing on letter size (8 1/2 by 11) is ok.
Are there settings to accomplish what we want? - printing on size B.
thank you

First of all here is a link to updated drivers for XP:

Second, try to connect to your printer via Internet (IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) and then look for any configuration regarding paper handling, tray configuration etc. Check if all parameters are right and the tray having size B paper is configured OK.

Autocad 14 is installed in the same computer, printing in size B is not a problem. The network printer has its own IP address, the printer is installed in one of the servers.
We do not want to use Autocad 14 anymore, we want Autocad 2000, but printing in size B is the problem.
According to your answer; do you want me to install the HP driver in the computer? well we have 10 workstations that were upgraded to Autocad 2000 from Autocad 14. 8 of the computers are running on XP pro and two on Windows 2000 Pro.

hi,

AutoCAD 2000 is not supported on Windows 2000 nor Windows XP and several problems can arise.
To solve this problem you may try to apply a suitable patch for AutoCAD 2000 (see www.xanadu.cz/download).

Hello:

   Be sure to check the plotter properties on the Device tab in the plot dialogue. In custom properties you can also set the default paper size for the plotter. We set various plotter configurations for different paper sizes and instead of re-setting the device properties we choose the appropriate configuration (plotter) from the device tab ie Hp 8150 8x11 or HP 8150 11x17 ...all preset to the proper sheet. Autocad creates and saves the correct separate configuration file.  Hope this helps.

cheers
