Printing issue

Hi, we are having an issue with a user trying to print to a TCS 500 plotter from AutoCAD. The plotter will show up under the dropdown list to choose from, but once choosen it never populates. It will say 'None' as the plotter shown instead of 'TCS 500.' I have attached a picture of the error message. When the user prints to the plotter from another program suchs as Adobe it works. Also, this plotter is on the network and no one else is having this issue.

We have already tried deleting the plotter and readding, deleting the print drivers and readding, and repairing AutoCAD with no luck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

try this - http://www.readmespot.com/question/f/7456/autocad-plotter-resets-to-none-when-selecting-an-oce-tcs500

I have found a work around.

Océ Windows Printer Driver just don't work, cannot fix them so I replaced them with Océ Adobe® PostScript 3 Drivers (1.14) and it has stopped it resetting, still need to do some testing, but fingers crossed.

Update: After a few days of testing we have found an issues with the PS drivers. For some reason when printing the correct orientation for a roll, it loses a 10-12cm (4-5 inch), down one side, but if printed the other way on it print fine but has to be trimmed down to size.

I'm concerned about the update portion of this. "For some reason when printing the correct orientation for a roll, it loses a 10-12cm (4-5 inch), down one side, but if printed the other way on it print fine but has to be trimmed down to size." Do you now of any other solutions. It's starnge because this is only happening to one user our of 30 or so that use LCD 2009 and print to the TCS 500.

I found this. It's supposed to be in here - http://www.oceusa.com/main/view_media.jsp?CONTENT%3C%3Ecnt_id=10134198673382561&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=9852723696638963&bmUID=1255064863110

images are rotated in such a way that their orientation is correct for folding. ... If this setting is present and a roll is used, the specified amount is added .... For example: 3-6 are the integers 3, 4, 5 and 6

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

That relevant? I'd just try the Océ Adobe® PostScript 3 Drivers and see if you have the same issue.
