Gateway Pen Drive .... not recognized on Windows XP

Have a Gateway 2.0 USB pen drive and trying to use it for the first time on Dell Desktop running Windows XP. The computer doesn't recognize it. Does it need formatted on the gateway laptop first? Does it need formatted on the Dell? Have used the USB port before for camera. Any advice is appreciated!!

    @rickyostrom: Dude usb 1.1 has nothing to do with this prob... it is just a pendrive and with a usb 1.1 port the device will be configured to have a maximum speed of 12Mbps...

    The Dell port your plugging it into might be a USB 1.1 and not a USB 2.0 port.

    Did the USB Pen come with drivers?

@rickyostrom: If the drivers is not present then there would be a pop up to say that the hardware connected is malfunctioning... the user is saying his device is not being recognised... i dont think the usb protocol is the reason of the problem...

@Enquiry: It's a USB 2.0 pen drive, which might not backwards support USB 1.1 without drivers. Many computers have USB 1.1 out one end of the case (back) and USB 2.0 out another (front).

I want to write pen with toshiba portege tablet on XP


If you have Windows XP tablet PC Edition 2005 installed on it, you can use the Wacom Pen to enter text instesd of type it.

On Windows XP tablet PC Edition 2005, there is an Input panel Icon on the tray bar, usually to the left, close to the Start button.
Use the pen to click the Input Panel. When it opens showing you a black line on yellowish backround you can start using the pen as if it were on paper. Depending on the pen input setting it will insert automatically or waits for you to press the insert button.
However for the converted text to be inserted you need to have a text editing software open (Word Pad for example.)

If when you open the input panel you see a keyboard you can change that to handwriting (continuous line) or typing separate letters.

The computer can be taught to recognize your handwriting: You will need to practice. You might have to download and install the relevant ink recognition package for your language. Look for it on the Microsoft tablet PC page.

I got my system, windows xp c drive formated and due to which i lost a tool(though i saved the folder in f drive and installed again but now not telling the system "genuine") windows xp validator.Actually...


Either you didn't 'activate" your copy of Windows XP in the time alotted; which is usually 30 days, or the copy of Windows XP that you used to re-install on your computer is not a legitimate copy. If your copy of Windows XP isn't legitimate, then that is likely the reason for it telling you that it's not "Genuine".

Fujitsu Stylistic 3500 Pen calibration in XP Tablet Edition


Well there is a few ways to try to fix it first with a usb mouse check that the resolution is at it's native pixel count. This can be found on the manufacture website. If it is already at that resolution ensure that the CIC XPen drivers are installed. Those should have placed a recalibration program in the control panel. If those both fail, try uninstalling the drivers and restarting, then reloading the drivers. Hope this helps! food luck and godspeed!

How to use the pen


Using the pen is quite simple.
You extract it from its storage space and use it as a mouse, left clicking it as you would a mouse.
By pressing the tip of the pen on an area on desktop or on an application window and maintaining the pressure for a short while, you activate the context menus (the equivalent of a right click.)

On the Windows task bar (for Windows XP) there is a small icon near the start button that shows a pen pointing outside: that is the input panel. Click the icon with a mouse or your pen, and an input area opens. In that area you write with the pen (writing Pad) or enter letters and symbols one at a time (Character Pad) or use a virtual keyboard.

Under the red X that closes the input panel there is a small gear. C;ick the gear with the pen or a mouse to configure the settings.

Your pen may have an eraser at the rear end and/OR on the side. It is used to erase characters or whole sentences.

To actually record (write) what you enter with the pen you must have a text-editing application open and running.
Whenever you approach the pen to the screen near a text-area (search area of IE or other compatible applications) a small icon appears to be clicked to enter text. This happens is you select UNDOCK in the input panel configuration.

This should get you started with the pen. Try these steps, and if you have any other questions post them as comments to this thread and it will be my pleasure to answer them.
