Genius tablet 8x6 with mousepen

Ok, this is a new one to me: I popped in the cd to installed and the screen to install the tablet came up, then a screen on top of it says: Epson Scan can not be started. Please troubleshoot from the assistant... I have tried to redo this several times and I still get a pop up relating to my Epson printer, which there is nothing wrong. Is there a conflict here? I am confused...please help!! Thanks!

Re: Genius tablet 8x6 with mousepen

I had a similar problem myself, this is due to temp files which are extracted during an installation. What happened is that a program extracted a setup file that was Read only into the temp directory. and that this file could not be overwritten or deleted, by the system (as it should be able to. to fix look in your temp directories to find this bogus setup file, when you find it delete it.

I have a MousePen 8X6 graphic tablet and by mistake I plug the device to my laptop before installing the tablet software. Now I can not install this software anymore.

With the tablet unplugged from your system, Install the software that came with the MousePen. This will ensure that your system has all of the necessary drivers.
Once that has completed, plug your tablet into a different USB port on your laptop than what you used before. Once you complete this, it should work. What version of windows are you using?

Genius 8x6 MousePen Tablet not detected

sounds like a short in the wiring. the usb cable i very flimsy and very prone to breaking. if you know what your doing you could open it up and TRY to fix it, but if its under warranty get a replacement. thats about all you can do bro. stupid companies and their cheap craftsmanship.

you can go to the prouct website. and download the mac driver. there is a list of drivers for specific platforms that you can download and install. just get the driver for the mac and unzip and install it.
as for the pensuite, pop in the cd that the tablet came with and try instaling it separately and manually instead of auto install. when the main menu pops up only install the pensuite from the cd onto the mac... if that doesn't work mbie you can download the programe.if that doesn't work then i don't know... *smiles*

Genius MousePen 8x6 Problem

I've had a similar problem - I unplugged the tablet from the PC and back in again, the PC recognised it as new and reinstalled it straight away (this is on XP). The first time the driver stopped responding I had unplugged the tablet because intended to deal with problem later. Plugged back in - worked. Twice now. I've restarted to see if the driver stopped again and if I would have to re-plug the tablet, didn't need to, I guess it's a solution to keep in mind next time this comes up.
