CLJ 3700N Hangs "Processing Job"

I have a CLJ 3700N connected directly to my PC via Parrallel Cable.  I have a color, photo quality page that I need to print, but when I print to the 3700 it takes more than 5 minutes to begin printing.  I can see the job spool to the printer, the file size in the print queue is huge (around 86MB), but even after it shows 86/86 as being transmitted it, the printer shows as "processing job" for 5 mins after that.  I'm able to print the same page on a lower quality DeskJet without any delays. Is there anything I can do to make this faster?  I assume it's the file size that it's choking on, what is making it so big for only this printer?

I also tried using a plain "Color Laser Jet" driver, to print to the same printer.  The file size was much smaller (around 25mb) but if it was any faster at all, it was negligible.  

Any ideas?

Thanks,

You might have to create a larger print spooler on another location.  Here is the Knowledge Base on this:
