Question about Summagraphics SummaSketch III Graphic Tablet
After a year of being dismantled, I reassembled my pc, with Windows 98. Every component works well -- the monitors, the keyboard, the mouse. But the SummaSketch is not powering up. My program does not detect it, and the light on it does not illuminate. The connections seems fine, and it worked well the last time I used this computer. Is there any way to revive my SummaSketch? I cannot access my files/documents without its functioning. It was purchased around 1996 or '97. The Dell computer is from around 2000. Thanks for any tips or help!
Absolutely, the Summasketch III needs a power pack, 12vdc which plugs into the RS232 plug (Computer side) Without this power supply plugged into the wall and into the cable the tablet will not work,

And just one more thing - there is likely to be a power switch along the top edge of the digitizer, as on my SummaSketch II Pro. It toggles the power - press it once to power up, press it again to power down. Good luck.

I have a SummaSketch II Professional. It connects to the computer's serial port. The serial connector has a piggy-back adaptor with a socket on it that accepts power input from a plugpack. Your SummaSketch III may require the same arrangement. If you don't have the plugpack connected your tablet will not be receiving any power, and that would explain why the power indicator lamp does not illuminate. Do a search on www.gtcocalcomp.com for details of the power requirement for you SummaSketch III.

System requirements never get smaller, but 7.0 bumps them up significantly. All systems need 128-MB RAM (192-MB recommended) with a CD-ROM drive and an 800x600 color monitor with at least 16-bit color (24-bit recommended).
On the Mac, you'll need a PowerPC (G3 or higher recommended) running OS 9.1 or higher (or OS X) with 320-MB of free disk space.
On Windows, you need a Pentium III or 4 running Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP with 280-MB of free disk space.
