Question about Wacom Graphire 4 "Silver" 4x5 (WMM132369)
I have a Wacom Graphire3 and Windows XP.
I can't seem to get the tablet to stay connected with my computer. The plugged-in light is on and green, but the round blue "on/off" ring flashes, like when you push the 'connect' button on the back. However, my computer already knows the tablet is there - it's listed in Bluetooth Devices. It just won't connect.
I can get it to get to say it's connected in the Bluetooth Devices box-thing for a while by going to Wacom Pen Tablet Properties and just making sure the "Drivers for keyboard, mice, etc. (HID)" box is checked, but it only says it's connected for a few seconds.
^^^ screencap I took...I don't know, in case it helps.
I just got Vista and it killed my Intuos2 w/serial to usb also, but here's a half solution:
Download Wacom driver 4.78-6 http://www.wacom-europe.com/int/downloads/driver/driver.asp?lang=en. Make sure you remove any other Wacom drivers, tablet, and reboot. Install 4.78-6 driver and select serial port when the choice pops up. Plug in your tablet with the serial to usb adapter, wait a few seconds and click retry. Complete the install and reboot.
Your Wacom tracking should work now, but certain things might not work like pressure sensitivity and you'll get annoying error "reinstall driver" pop-ups.
I think you can aslo buy a PCI-serial card for your computer and skip the serial-usb adapter since Vista doesn't support the adapter for Wacom tablets.. but I'm not sure if there's a working Vista serial Wacom driver either.. or ever will be. The age of XP and Legacy support is at an end my friends.

Wacom will send you the wire for your tablet. Its only $15. You have to be very careful in opening the tablet in that the top and bottom are connected by a short flat wire leash someone eager to get all the way apart will permanently damage. If its out of warranty you have absolutely nothing to lose. Its very easy to replace. Replacing it fixed my problem caused by having the computer sitting on the corner of the wire for several months.

Go to this page:
Choose Graphire 3 or Graphire 4 as your tablet model. These are the CTE models. Then pick your OS and download the driver.

Testimonial: "Problem solved! thank you veary much"
I'm just gonna pass on a email from Tech Support I recieved.
"It sounds as though your pen has pressure in proximity. This is present when the tip sensor of your pen is stuck down causing the pen to think that it’s clicking before it’s even touching anything. What you may want to try would be to remove the nib from the tip end of the pen, it pulls straight out with a pair or tweezers or your teeth, and leave that out overnight with the pen left on its side. Place the nib back in the morning and if the issue persists then you may have a defective pen tip."
The rest consists of personal info and warranty advice so I'll leave it there.

Hey I had this problem too with my Bamboo too, I'm not sure if it was anything I changed or whatever but either way the blue light was on but it wasn't registering the pen.
I found a way just minutes ago to fix it however!
Go into 'start', 'all programs', then look for 'pen tablet'. Hopefully you should have this. If not then download the latest driver for your tablet from the wacom website and that should install it.
Next choose 'pen tablet preference file utilty'. Then under 'my preferences' choose to remove. Bingo! All was well in the world again.
This worked for me so hopefully it will for some of you guys too! Good luck!
