Question about Wacom ZC100 Mouse

2 Answers

My Wacom mouse is driving me insane!!!

When I use my mouse to click, click and drag, basically do ANYTHING it either double clicks automatically or doesn't click at all. Basically I think the left click button is malfunctioning. Do I need to get a new mouse? Is there any way I can get JUST the mouse and will it work with the tablet and pen that I have- those are working fine. Is there anything I can do to fix my mouse.

Need help- I have a huge project due in design class and this problem is going to cause me to have a stroke.

    Wacom mouse from HELL!!!
    Hit it and it works for a while...

  • psyweb Dec 11, 2008

    I've had this happen to me a few times (I'm already on my third Wacom mouse and am just about to need another) and it does actually make me want to rampage for flesh.
    I tried everything - from reinstalling the software and drivers to focusing chunks of unadulterated violence on to it - but nothing works.
    The only real remedy is to get a new mouse.
    You can get one without the tablet from the Wacom website in the 'spare parts and accessories' area of the site. (this is for the europe store only - and make sure the mouse is compatible with your tablet. Intuos 1 and 2 mice will not work with Intuos 3 tablets).
    They're not cheap, but it is really the only option if you don't want to lose your mind and hours of work like I have almost done before!

    Same problem: left click button double clicks or doesn't click at all without multiple tries. Very frustrating! A replacement mouse is $70! What a rip off.

    Same problem here too..just started happening...costs $70 bucks to replace!!

    Same problem here. The left button worked fine for a while, but then just stopped working. My workaround is to re-program the small thumb button on the left side of the mouse (5th button) to click. That seems to work fine.

    Same problem here. I spoke with customer support, but they did not offer any help. Thought it was a software issue, but definitely mechanical.

    I have some problem, my left clic sometimes -often work like write click. I use Intuos 3 tablet and mouse. I uninstall an istal new driver, but still not works properly. I think the softwear is problem. I work on MAC OSX 10. 5.6.

    I think this is a software issue.  Left mouse click works sporadically.

  • MsLorenza Mar 01, 2009

    when I do a left click, it will double, triple, or quad- click.

  • moodooguru May 02, 2009

    Left click = 2, 3, or 4 clicks. Grabbing a window to move it will cause the window to minimize. Very frustrating

    This is the problem I'm having, and I want Wacom to give me a new mouse. It's been less than a year and I need a new mouse already, which is just not acceptable.

I think I figured out this problem. It's more of a wearing issue with the constant use of the button. Basically the plastic tab on the internal underside on the mouse is wearing down from continual use. I added a piece of custom cut card stock under the front of the mouse circuit board. This raised it up just a little to compensate for the wear on the button.

I was having the same exact problem. Something inside came loose and was moving around. I could hear something little moving around when I shook it in the air. But, the skipping was making me so C-R-A-Z-Y that I eventually lost my temper and slammed the mouse down on my desk, causing the scroll wheel to push down into the cavity too far and break. Now when I shake it I hear an even bigger piece of something moving around inside. But, GUESS WHAT? The skipping problem is gone (go-figure) !! But the wheel doesn't work so I ordered a new one. Anyways, my best guess is that it has something to do with the scroll wheel.

You need to set the sensitivity down lower, you do this in mouse properties in control panel, or if the tablet has a facility use that.

Wireless Optic Logitech mouse performace

I had the exact same problem with my original Logitech wireless mouse that came with a wireless keyboard. I eventually figured that the button component inside the mouse wasn't making consistent contact causing unintended double clicking or dropping while dragging. I fixed it by doing some soldering to switch the left mouse button with the right mouse button, since I didn't have to use double clicking or dragging with the right mouse button. It worked pretty well for several months until the switched left button started showing the same problem again. Now my newer Logitech mouse (it's more expensive Nano wireless mouse) is having the same problem after about 1 year using it. I think there's a serious durability problem with the button component that Logitech is putting on their mice. I may do the same trick again on this mouse, but now I don't consider Logitech as a good mouse manufacturer anymore. They used to make good quality hardwares but I guess they aren't that good anymore with all those cheap Chinese suppliers for their parts. :(

Wacom Intuos 3 unintentional double click

I've been having the same problem and I think I just figured it out.

I'm using a Wacom Intuos 3 on Windows Vista. I think one of the Windows automatic updates caused this problem. I've just been putting up with it for way too long when I finally thought to check the driver.

I started by going to the control panel and typing in "mouse" in the search box. Then I clicked on "change mouse click settings". When I selected the "hardware" tab across the top I noticed that Wacom Mouse was not highlighted. I selected it and clicked on the "properties" button. I clicked on the "driver" tab across the top and clicked on the "driver details" button. Then I selected the wacommousefilter.sys driver and chose "ok". After that my double click problem has stopped.

You can also download the newest driver by going here:

I hope this helps anyone still having this problem.

Check the CCORNELL posting for the solution. Your mouse is double clicking when it should be only single clicking.

Wacom tablet won't recognize pen

Hmm. I've had a similar thing happen with my tablet. Have you tried removing the tablet pen from the list of tools in tablet preferences and then adding it to the list again before checking the 'About' section of the tablet pen set-up and clicking the 'diagnose' button there in? As that worked for me when my tablet pen was not working. The pen was recognized by the tablet after that.

Mouse has lost its grip! (electrical grip, that is)

ok. i see your having great time using that mouse and you cared that device for several years. Try open your mouse and carefully remove these buttons of your mouse to clean those dirty stuff stacked on those linings( I believe that you haven't done this before, right?). I believe that this will need to clean a bit to give it back on track again.

Serial port?

There are two basic ways to work around this situation: * Use a PS/2 mouse instead of a serial mouse. Using a PS/2 mouse will free up your serial port so that you can connect the camera to the computer. Check the computer's documentation to see if this type of mouse is available for your system. * Enable MouseKeys on your computer. MouseKeys allows you to use the numeric keypad to move the mouse pointer and to click, double-click and drag. After enabling MouseKeys, you can disconnect the serial mouse and connect the camera to the computer. Click Here to see an animated demonstration, or follow the instructions below. To enable MouseKeys: 1. From the Windows toolbar, select Start > Settings > Control Panels. 2. Double-click the Accessibility Options icon. 3. Select the Mouse tab. 4. Select Use MouseKeys and change settings, if desired. 5. Click OK.
