Wacom Tablet Problems x_x

Hello there. I'm an artist,and i use MS Paint and a wacom tablet for most of my creations. I noticed,however that when i try to draw lately that a straight line will slash through my art and i never made it,so i have no idea why it's doing this...i also try to "undo" it,but it won't go away unless i erase it which is annoying because even when i erase,more lines are created. it's been troubling me a lot lately and i can't get my art accomplished. :'( Also,I tried going back to using my regular dell mouse and it's been doing the same thing as my tablet...Do you have any idea why it could be doing this...? Thank you.

SOURCE: serial to usb wacom tablet problem

I just got Vista and it killed my Intuos2 w/serial to usb also, but here's a half solution:
Download Wacom driver 4.78-6 http://www.wacom-europe.com/int/downloads/driver/driver.asp?lang=en. Make sure you remove any other Wacom drivers, tablet, and reboot. Install 4.78-6 driver and select serial port when the choice pops up. Plug in your tablet with the serial to usb adapter, wait a few seconds and click retry. Complete the install and reboot.
Your Wacom tracking should work now, but certain things might not work like pressure sensitivity and you'll get annoying error "reinstall driver" pop-ups.

I think you can aslo buy a PCI-serial card for your computer and skip the serial-usb adapter since Vista doesn't support the adapter for Wacom tablets.. but I'm not sure if there's a working Vista serial Wacom driver either.. or ever will be. The age of XP and Legacy support is at an end my friends.

SOURCE: My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode

I had the same problem with my Intuos3 on Vista. Tech support suggested the following.

Do this.....Go to Start--->control panel---->system(in classic view)---->device manager--->click on "human interface devices"--->then click on "Wacom virtual HID driver" and right click on that and disable it. Your computer will ask you to restart and you will want to do that.

Everything works fine now.

SOURCE: New Wacom Intuos 6x8 Graphics Tablet with a Serial connection (using a USB converter) work with Vista?

Searched for ages to find a driver for my giant wacom (UD-1212-R) on Vista 64. As of this moment there isn't one, and it looks like they are not even going to bother. But if there are any geniuses out there........

SOURCE: WIRE FROM WACOM TABLET NEEDS REPLACEMENT

Wacom will send you the wire for your tablet. Its only $15. You have to be very careful in opening the tablet in that the top and bottom are connected by a short flat wire leash someone eager to get all the way apart will permanently damage. If its out of warranty you have absolutely nothing to lose. Its very easy to replace. Replacing it fixed my problem caused by having the computer sitting on the corner of the wire for several months.

SOURCE: Pen Won't STOP Working

Well... I contacted Wacom support and the guy who write back recomended me to change the nib, to turn 3 times the eraser and to hit 4 times with the pen onto your palm hand...

Of course I didn´t do anything like that, I mean, what´s that??? An spell of some sort (or what)???

But what I did was the following (MAC-OS user):

-Enter to the pen tablet options on your preferences
-Switch the sensitiveness of the pen to the hardest
-Run an app that work´s best with your tablet and make some lines to check if at least in this mode the pen works
-Return to your tablet preferences and adjust at your best

I can´t explain why but my stylus is working fine again...
hope someone find this useful...

I have the et-0405-u and i want to use in with win 7 how can i get the driver and a program that i can draw scatches with it


Oh sketches! Gotcha! First of all - check that your pen actually has a 'nib' a plastic rod/insert. I reversed mine bacause it was getting worn, but it fell out and I had similar symptoms, so I have put it back in the right way round and all works fine now.
I do not know if this tablet works on Win7 - most likely does - check at Wacom.com. It works fine on Vista - just plug it in! It will be recognised straight away, mine was. If you have Windows, you should have at the bare minimum MS Paint, or whatever else it is called. If your tablet is responding and correctly recognised, opening up Paint should let you start sketching right away. But if you have any art talent at all you would be far far better off with Corel Draw (or whatever it is named these days), Photoshop or the like - far more possibilities (Corel Draw has all sorts of creative brushes and effects, I have no artistic talent but can produce great things with it).

Hi Bengref
Just talked to WACOM USA about a similar (but not exactly the same) problem with my Intuos 3. One of their procedures was;

go to the ALL Programs directory,

go to the the WACOM TABLET directory

open the WACOM Tablet Properties window

click on the "About" button

while holding down the CTRL key, click on the "Diagnose" button

click on the "recalibrate" button

Another procedure

go to the All Programs Directory

go to the WACOM Tablet Directory

click on the :WACOM Table Preference File Utility"

Under "My Preferences" click on remove


Good Luck

Wacom tablet


Most Wacom tablets emulate the mouse so you will always have that function. The question is the extras like pressure and eraser. Those you will just have to try out yourself. But if all you are looking for is a natural interface for your interior design software I think a wacom will work well.
Hope this helps.

Pen no longer pressure senstive in painter


Go to Start>Programs>Wacom>Wacom Properties and in there you should be able to "Add" Painter X to the programs recognised by the tablet app.

Pen pressure and scale problems


I also use Intuos 3 tablet, did you already try replacing the tip and reconfiguring the pen to the screen? You can find this in the driver software, it synchronizes the pen and tablet.
If you already tried that, does the problem only occur in Photoshop? Also, check your brush preferences, you can go back to your default settings and see. If talking to Wacom fails, you might have a bad pen or tablet.
