Question about Wacom Bamboo Fun USB Tablet with Cordless Pen and Mouse - Silver

1 Answer

Odd Cursor Movement with Tablet Pen

I recently bought a new laptop and installed the driver needed for my Wacom tablet. The first thing I noticed was my inability to draw a smooth line in Flash. Even though the pen is being held still, the cursor shakes slightly and drifts a little. The only reason i can think would be the wireless usb mouse I have on the same computer.

I am operating under Windows Vista SP1 on a Toshiba laptop with 3gb of ram and 200 gb of memory. I have a wireless optical mouse in use at the same time. I am drawing in Flash MX 2004. The pen driver i downloaded is the "new" version from the Wacom website.
(I don't think Vista is the problem, since I was using Vista on my desktop under the same SP and didn't have any problems.)

Illustrator CS5 does not recognize my graphic pen, wether with the Wacom tablet or my new Monoprice tablet. It draws a yellow sticky note kind of thing, it is annoying and I can't find a solution,


I too have a tablet not made by Wacom. For some reason, Illustrator only opens the tablet-sensitive definitions for Wacom. The solution I found: Go to the Wacom site, install the latest intuos driver. You won't be using it, but it will trick Illustrator into thinking there's a Wacom installed, the definitions will be active for your pen. Mine seems to work fine now.

My Wacom pen doesn't work. The blue light on the tablet turns green when I touch the pen to it, but the cursor doesn't move on the screen. I thought that the tip needed to be replaced, but after changing...


Does the mouse work (on the tablet)? What happens when the side buttons are pressed do they work? Try un-installing the Wacom driver (Pen Tablet Utility) and Install the latest version from www.wacom.com and see if that helps.

I had a similar problem on my laptop

I plugged the tablet directly into the laptop rather than the USB hub I'd been using until then, The issue disappeared.

Possibly it's a power issue, and going direct cured it?

Unsteady cursor


I think I have figured it out, I believe it is caused by interference from the computer (probably the hdd). try moving the tablet further away from your tower or laptop.. Mine has to be about 12 inches away to be steady.. I use a Lenovo T61p...

My pen cursor jumps all over the place


You may have an issue with the Graphire pen. Try plugging the tablet into another computer and see if the pen does the same thing there. If it behaves the same way on another computer then you need a new pen from Wacom.

I had the same problem at first but managed to solve it. In my case I was setting up in tandem with another monitor and once I had correctly set the pixel dimensions of both monitors and set them to to 'mirror' mode it works pretty well. The only issue now seems to be a slowing of stroke speed ie the cursor lags behind my strokes. I have downloaded a new driver but not installed yet. Does anyone else have this problem?

Initial Delay of tablet pen


I had a similar problem with Vista which made the pen/cursor freeze just as the tip was placed on the tablet face.
The problem turned out to be a Vista setting.
I went to Start > Control Panel > Pen and Input Devices.
Then in the Pen Options tab highlight the "Press and Hold" pen action and then press the "Settings..." button. In the dialog box that opens uncheck the "Enable press and hold for right-clicking" check box. Hit "OK".
Worked for me.
