My tablet worked perfectly until I got a new laptop, Windows Vista. The curser spazzes out and jumps across the screen wherever it feels like. Often when I don't even apply pressure at all, the mouse will keep skipping back to one place. (In Photoshop, it was like two conflicting sources of mouse when I tried drawing.)
I've tried many things. I've tried calibrating it, but that only works for about a minute. I've unplugged it an tried using it in every USB port. I've restarted my laptop. Yes, the driver is installed. I've even disabled my laptop's mouse! What the heck should I do?!
Omg... I just found out how to get around this problem, so see if it works for you. I found that I could download a special driver that would cause the 12000u aiptek tablet to work. Here's what it is called:
Download the driver, restart your computer, and there ya go! Saved me from having to spend even more money on a new pen tablet.
I found it simply by searching for "aiptek 12000u vista downloads" or whatever. Hope this helps!

Re: Windows Vista Issues
It may be a conflict with Windows Vista, it is most likely that you tablet manufacturers are aware of this issue and that they have either released updated drivers already, or that they are in the proccess of creating drivers to resolve this issue.
These kinds of problems happen often when there is a platform change / new release

If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate you can install XP mode and Windows Virtual PC on top of Windows 7 and run XP mode.Install the drivers on XP mode and you should be able to use your tablet. Virtual PC and XP mode are available free of charge on the Microsoft web site. The site requires authentification to verify that your copy of Windows is genuine.
It's the windows 7 tablet feature that causes the problem. To solve it you have to disable it. Go to start -> search write "services.msc" (without the strokes) and hit enter. Now search for "Tablet PC Input Service" double click on it and when a little window pops up set Disabled under startup type list box. Now if you want to see effect immediately there is a button Stop, click on it, and wait until service is stopped. When done close both windows. This way you don't have to even restart your pc.
I'm not familiar with the utility software that comes with the bamboo, myself, but I am using the Intuos3, just a bigger version.
Have a look at Start>Programs>Wacom>Tablet Properties
In here you will find all sorts of seetings and customisable features.
Your looking for 'Tablet' then 'Mapping' and maybe set for 'Full Screen' - I'm guessing it's set on portion.

Ur issue is that the tablet itself can not be above the tower or the laptop. Magnets make it shake. I had that problem to anytime it was by the computer (only above for some reason) or by something magnetic, so avoid that and you should be fine.
I had the same problem, and my fix was really simple. Did you make sure that your mouse and pen aren't on the tablet at the same time? I took my mouse off the tablet, the pen immediately stopped jumping around.

I tried it out on an Adesso 8600 Cybertablet. It works perfectly.

It works fine on my old computer but not on my new vista computer. I downloaded the new drivers from your website that say Vista on them but I still get a double cursor. I have found that many people on internet forums are having this same problem. Are you going to make a vista compatable driver for the 8600?
