I think it may have been converted to a bitmap or jpeg then saved at a low res.? or maybe your file has some raster images in it, are you cutting directly from your draw program and using the print function for your plotter?
The once vector was turned into a bitmap. Hence it having a resolution problem. The trace you did reconverted back to the vector hence no resolution problem. i would see about going to the folder where you have it saved and check to see if you have a backup of the file. i wouldnt exactly trust the retraced artwork... good luck
