Question about Hitachi Computers & Internet
I can write with pen on the tablet but it is very slow. If I attempt to write fast it falls behind. I am using PC XP.
I encountered a similar problem with SMART/Sympodium. There I solved it with resetting the circle of influence of the mouse. (Like how close to an icon center should you be for mouse/pen to be able to click on it).
But I do see a similar setting on Starboard.
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.

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!

SOURCE: point pen fails after falls
I'm guessing something inside the pen was jarred. A basic solution would be to get a replacement.
Also try taking the tip out of the pen and leaving it OUT of the pen for 24hrs.

If you have the ability and space then recover any files that you can
use the RUN option from the start menu
now type in "cmd" then ENTER
Now in the black box that appears type "chkdsk x: /f /r" and press ENTER
The "x" is the drive letter of the drive you wish to check
It may take some time but this will try fix any errors it comes acrosss and you may have to re-start to complete the task.
Now remove any more files that you can.
Use the RUN command again but this time type "compmgmt.msc"
Select Disk management
Make sure you freeagent is listed here.
Right click and select "Format"
Select NTFS as the file system
Do not tic any other boxes
When it is done you can move the files back to this drive.
It is quite possible you hit the limits of the FAT32 file system which would have caused the types of error you saw.

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.
