Are you plotting to a file or to a device?
Try plotting to a PDF.

To a device.  We are looking into PDF.  Is there any pdf for autocad better than the rest.  Multi drawing, plot files support that you would recommend?
We have kip plotters and they come with software that can convert to pdf from plot files.
The download is free and I don't think you have to have the device to plot to a file.

You will need:
Request software download
Kip AutoCad plotter driver.
Kip request will only convert plot files created by a kip driver thats why you need the driver as well.

The other option is to download Cute PDF writer and use the publish command (I think that was in 2004)to batch plot the files.
You should try ploting it to DWF and then printing the DWF using DWF viewer.

I had a problem similar to you when printing a large file to PDF..
