Try resetting the printer subsystem and re-installing the printer.
That seemed extreme; The support.apple.com calls resetting the printer system a "last resort", and, as I mentioned, everything worked except Adobe Reader. Nonetheless, I did it, and reinstalled the HP Print Driver from the CD-ROM.
Exactly the same result -- I can print from anything except Adobe Reader, and I can print from Adobe Reader by using the Print As Image option.
So, that didn't work. Thanks for trying.
To clarify my previous post, I had already seen http://forums.adobe.com/message/1770581 . I mentioned in my post that I get the message "Preview not supported" when I click the Preview button from the print dialog in Adobe Reader, and thus concluded that the "Preview" workaround discussed in that thread wasn't helping me.
However, re-reading that post, they were talking about using the Mac "Preview" application to print the pdf file. Like every other application (other than Reader) I have tried, the Mac's Preview application prints just fine, and is another workaround.
The only program that doesn't print for me is Adobe Reader.
BTW, I also have an Intel chip in my MacBook Pro.
Re-installing Leopard, as suggested by one post in that thread, is not a reasonable option for this problem.
In fact, since Preview allows me to view and print .pdf's , my solution is probably just going to be not to use Adobe Reader. In fact, had I not been new to the Mac, I would have known that I didn't need Adobe Reader at all.
However, I'm glad this happened, in the sense that I use CS3 on the PC, and had considered moving to CS4 on the Mac. However, since Adobe apparently hasn't figured out how to get printing to work on a Mac from their flagship product (!), I will be sure to do a lot of testing of CS4 before considering buying the upgrade.
I am experiencing the exact same behavior as reported in this thread. Mac's Preview program -- and all other programs for that matter -- print just fine. Only my version of Acrobat Pro 9.1.3 fails. Has anyone found a solution?
I have reset my printing subsystem AND removed and then reinstalled Acrobat Pro. Still no go.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

So I finally found a way to get this to print ... I have changed under "print" then "advanced" and then changed "Font & Resource Policy" to "send for each page" and it worked!
Hope that helps!
I was having the same exact issue described in this thread but using Adobe 9.4.1 on Mac 10.6.5. When I went into Advanced, 'Send for each Page' was already greyed out and selected, so the above advice wouldn't work.... but when I selected 'Print as Image', it finally worked. Unfortunately that's not a feature that sticks, so you need to do that every time you print.
Using the 'Preview' App worked as well, so we have a few work arounds. The funny thing is on my other computer (this problem was on my wife's computer), I don't have this problem - same hardware, same software. and I can print from PDF's just fine without the 'Image' thing....
This thread helped me, hope my post helps someone else.
This option worked for me. I needed to print out a pattern that is protected and I could only do it using Adobe, so using another PDF viewer was not an option. I am delighted that this work-around was sucessful. Thanks!!
Sorry for not being more specific. By "this option" I mean the one posted by @masteratrus.
