    This is almost always outdated drivers, try updating the drivers to the latest versions on your print server and client (if mapped manually) then give it another go. I had this problem a lot in the early days of pushing Vista and it was always driver related.

    As Synack says it sounds like drivers.

    We had problems with the HP 2600 printers causing this.
