HP CLJ5500 MOPYing issue

Hi all, I having this issue, pls help;

a same file print to 2 different machine : (a) Printer CLJ5500 with 20GB hard disk and (b)Copier Ricoh Aficio 3235C with 40GB HD. The copier only took 2 min to complete the instructed printing job, but CLJ5500 took 15 minute to finish.

File properties;
- 3MB size
- Format : Macromedia Freehand 10 & OS Window XP
- Enable 'composite' in Print windows
- Spooling enable. FYI, using 'send file direct..' setting also gave a same result
- no. of copy : 5
- Printer Driver : PCL6
- paper/output size : A3

CLJ5500 behave like this when printing;
- 1st copy print out : 3 min. Panel Display show : processing job 1 of 5.
- 2nd copy out 2 min later. Panel Display show : processing job 1 of 5.
- process repeated until 5th copy finish to print with interval time between printout is 2-3 min.Panel Display still show : processing job 1 of 5.
- Then Panel shows processing 2 of 5 and 5 pages prints out continously. The process repeated with now Panel show : processing job 3 of 5, ... 4 of 5, ...5 of 5..
- The end result : My total printout is 25 copy instead of only 5 copy that I needed.

Pls help me so my CLJ5500 will receive this file then duplicate(or MOPY) it to required copy ,finally prints the copy continuosly.

Thank you in advance.

not sure what composite means.
does the 5550 driver have a collate selection on printer properties?

With the Hp it should print most jobs in collated sets with the HDD

Try printing a different file type from ms word or another program
to rule out your application.

Is the Hp hard drive recognized on the configuration sheet?
