Default PDF Printing Problem

I have a PDF File that is a massive 178 pages, When i press print my printer will print all the pages no problem, But the amount of ink and paper i would have to use is massive, then i have loads of A4 sheets of paper sitting around. So i went through my printer options and i could print it out like a booklet so 2 pages on one page page 1 and 178 so when i fold them it makes a nice little book, But every time i go to do this it goes past the spooling mark and says printing but the printer doesn't print anything then and a certain point it tells me to move the printed papers back into the tray so it can print on the other side of the page.

I gather this is a spooler problem because when i printed 8 pages of the PDF onto 4 pieces of paper to test it worked fine but i wont do 178 pages this way, so i thought id make it into several books but it got to the point i would have to make it over 6 books long at 30 or so pages but even this amount wouldn't print. And there is no point having 10 paged books.

The only way i can think of getting around this is to get a program that allows me to rearrange the pages so putting page 1+178 then 2+177 so on then in another program i already have merge the 2 pages together so its one sheet again. But this is a long way around it.

So my question is... Does anyone know a way i can achieve the same result but slightly easier or how to get my Printer (HP Deskjet F4500) to print it out?
If it ain't broke don't fix it, improve it, break it then fix it
