Question about Wacom intuos2 12x18 USB Tablet (507074)

1 Answer

The mouse on my Wacom Intuos tablet is not working.

The pen seems to work fine, but for some reason I can't switch it into mouse mode. Using the mouse on the tablet doesn't move the mouse across the screen, and none of the buttons on the mouse provoke any response at all when pressed. As far as I can tell, the tablet is unable to recognize the mouse.

I know this question was asked a long time ago, but I just had this similar problem and found a solution to it.

1. Install the latest Wacom drivers for your device
2. Open the Wacom Tablet Properties from the Start menu.
3. Click on the Mouse tool
4. Click on the Mapping tab halfway down the screen
5. Change the mode from Mouse to Pen

When I'm using Photoshop CS4 with my Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, the screen tracking for the tablet only works for half the tablet. This happens with everything else as well, not just Photoshop...


Go to Control Panel, and open bamboo properties. There you select the "pen" tab. In the pen tab you will see tracking. Select pen mode and details. You can map the pad there. After mapping pen mode try it in mouse mode as well. Best of luck!

My Genius Mousepen 8x6 tablet isn't working with the pen. If the pen touches the tablet, the light lights up, but the cursor doesn't click and it won't move either. The mouse is working fine, though.


My i608 pen stopped working today. I've had it for a month. The mouse was working fine, but the pen wouldn't work at all. Then I left the mouse on the pad and used the pen while the mouse was on the pad, and the pen started working again. Now it works even without the mouse on the pad. Did it re-establish the radio connection or something by doing that? Anyway, saved me the $25 replacement cost.

Tablet Pen moves very slowly across the screen. It used to work fine, but the last few times I've tried, the mouse ends up moving faster. I used to be able to move the pen across the tablet and the mouse...


This may be a processor issue, as mine does this too.
As for others, most issues surrounding the stylus are battery related.
I will help anybody with a broken, or inoperative stylus/pen get their pen operating again. I have started a business around this issue because so many people's pens are malfunctioning (including mine originally which drove me to do this). This was fueled by Gateway's lack of caring around the issue, and their attempts to charge ridiculous fees for customer service. I charge $20 to switch out the battery to get your stylus working again, plus shipping and handling both ways, about $25 total.

My pen tablet is on and running, when I bring the pen across the tablet it moves the cursor on the screen, but in my art program, it isn't painting - but if I click with my mouse, that will paint.


You may need to set it up in preferences in the programme (without knowing which programme you're using). It will work if you remove the mouse.

My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode


The winning answer came courtesy of Mr Benedikt Schmitt of Wacom Europe, who offered the following solution: from the Windows Device Manager, disable the “Wacom Virtual Hid Driver” device. (Go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager, find the driver, right-click it and choose “Disable”.) One reboot later (welcome to Windows-land, circa 2008?), everything works as desired. Pressure and tilt sensitivity inside Photoshop still work, and the pen functions just fine in the rest of the Windows desktop. The absolute mapping makes it an absolute pleasure to point quickly and precisely. It makes my laser mouse feel rather clumsy navigating a large 24′ screen!

My Pen Doesn't Work


I had the same problem. Tried to re-install, install the newest software, but non of that worked. So what I did is knocked 3 times very hard with the other side of the pen on the tablet... and it's working fine now. I guess the tablet just needed a little boost. Hope this will do the trick for you too.

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.
