Question about Wacom Bamboo Fun 5.8" x 3.7" USB Tablet with Cordless Pen and Mouse - Black
Normally, my Intuos3 tablet is able to easily distinguish pressures when I'm using it for drawing, painting, etc. However, just recently the pen stopped recognizing pressure sensitivity in Photoshop CS3 altogether. I checked the tablet's properties and everything's working fine with the pen, but I'm still very frustrated about the fact that it stopped working right after I had it for hardly a week.
I have this tablet, and about after a week it started being weird with the pressure... when I hover it, it would draw. Back then, I just increased the pressure needed for it to show up and it worked fine. However, its now even gotten so bad that if I just hover it, it acts as if I'm drawing. If I draw, same.
Then, occasioanlly, it just doesn't show at all...
and then an even lesser, but more-than-one-time occurance, I will have the pen go across the board and where it is supposed to be (you'll see the mouse) it will be drawing about an inch to the right.
Before you start Photoshop press and hold the shift key and wait until photoshop has loaded.
This should take care of the problem.

I have the same problem, but only if I unplug my tablet, and plug it back in. If anytime I unplug my tablet, I have to restart Windows before Photoshop CS3 recognized pressure, or the eraser end of my pen.

Try replacing your pen nib, or perhaps get a new pen.
I had the same problem, but when I used my back up pen, it worked fine.

OK, I found the problem -- if you open photoshop with the mouse (whether it be through the quicklaunch bar, start menu, or desktop icon), the pressure sensitivity doesn't work. If you open it with the stylus or function button (I have a function button mapped for photoshop now because of this, since there's no icon on my tablet's display with how I have my display set up) the pressure sensitivity works fine.
A quick KIND of fix, but until Adobe actually does something about it, this is probably the easiest way to do it.
