Question about Wacom Bamboo Fun USB Tablet with Cordless Pen and Mouse - Silver
My Bamboo Fun tablet was working perfectly fine the day before. Then I unplugged it to take it to my family's place and use it there while visiting.
Now when I plugged it in this morning the blue ring did not light up and widows popped up a "usb device not recognized" error.
I uninstalled, restarted my pc, then re-installed the software but still nothing.
I haven't contacted wacom customer support. A couple weeks ago my pen quit and they never answered my help request, so I'm not going to rely on them for anything.
Change the USB cable... this is the problem...

Turn off your PC, unplug the power cord from the socket short the cable's legs then leave it for 5 min then connect again to power socket and turn the pc on, its should work fine :)

I think you dropped the pen on its tip and broke the little ferrite sensing core. You can try to repair it by gluing the core back together - it worked for me. For detailed instructions on how to do it, go here:
or you can try to swap the core for the eraser and the tip (more involved - you would need to be very good with a soldering iron to attempt this). Either way - it's unfortunate that the pen is so fragile and that the user manual doesn't really warn you of this.

Your tablet is set under the handwriting setting. Go to system preferences and select ink under hardware. Then turn off handwriting recognition.
