Hi. This has come up before numerous times. Never sure, in my mind, there was a diffinitive answer.
The HP Journal that announced the printers for the HP-41C series indicated not to use 82175A paper in the 91, 92, and 97 as it would damage the print heads via premature wear. From the 41C Journal articles and others on the 97, etc., the resistors for the 41C era print devices and the 9x units operate at different temperature. If you touch and run your fingernail across the 82175A and 82045A they do feel different.
Various HP product brochures (via the DVDs on this site) have specifically stated 82045A can be used in the 9x calcs and 41C type printers, but the 82175A is for the 41C (and later) printers. However, I was not able to locate those again before this post. Which puzzles me, as I know I've seen them.
One of the posts subsequent to yours suggests there is a 82175B paper. There may very well be, but I've never located it (which doesn't necessarily mean a lot).
PM Corp has paper they claim is OEM equivalent (but the paper is thinner) to 82045A, PMC-05233. Seems in previous articles people have used NCR and various other common papers w/o problems, but I was unable to decipher whether they know the paper is OK or just haven't had problems yet.
What I have found on my own is in the link below:
