    Sorry Dyllan,

    I am really excited to get a reply ~ I have tried a few other help locations with out even a reply -

    Current system:
    Desk Top from PC Laptops (approx 1 year old) - Win XP Pro SP2 (soon to be Vista)
    Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 CPU
    6600 @ 2.40 GHz
    2.40 GHz, 2.00 GB of RAM

    I don't have a serial port so guess I need adapters for Tablet, Mouse and 3 button Pen

    I do need drivers..

    THANKS soooo much for your qiuck reply..

    BTW I do recall (tho fuzzy) trying to get it to work on a Win 95 system and couldn't


  • Dave-n-Chris Sep 20, 2007

    You can't imagine how much I appreciate the help..

    I thought about seting up a Linux Vert drive - but not sure that would help because all my apps ie. Adobe Photoshop, Elements, Picasa2, Corel Draw 8 with photo paint, Micrografx, and on & on plus AutoCad lite. and 3 other drafting programs,are windows.. Yes I'm software popor.

    Anyway I will look forward to your reply this evening. I'm in Mountain Standard time zone.. have to run errands so won't be back for a while.

    Again Thanks VERY much


  • Dave-n-Chris Sep 20, 2007

    Forgot to mention - there are "Templates" for the A-1212 (AutoCad for one) - but maybe I should think about geting a new and less expensive tablet..

  • Dave-n-Chris Sep 21, 2007

    Your effort was valiant to be sure! I appreciate the help very much.

    I guess it doesn?t make sense to drive a Ferrari with a ?1950s?steering wheel and gearshift lever on the steering column!

    This isn?t my only problem; I have 6 computers, including one dedicated, and belonging to the company I work for. 4 work and are networked so maybe we can chat again another time.

    I am really impressed with ?FixYa?

    Thanks again,

From what I can find on this, it sounds like it has a standard serial connector - which should work with your computer. Does the cable not fit any port on your PC? If not, how many pins are there? As for drivers - what operating system are you using? I've found a number of sites with drivers, but most are for varieties of Linux.

    Sorry, I totally missed that you gave the OS initially.

    I haven't found any XP or Vista drivers yet. I'll have to look some more tonight when I get home.

  • John Goodman Sep 21, 2007

    I can't find a windows driver anywhere... spent quite a bit of time looking last night, and decided to sleep on it so I could have a fresh look this morning.

    I don't think it exists.

    You could always do a Linux install and use Vmware or Win4Lin (or maybe Wine, if it supports them) to run your Windows software.

    But, you're right, it would probably be easier to just replace the tablet.

  • John Goodman Sep 21, 2007

    Unfortunately, it's pretty much pot-luck.

    If I have my live chat on, I believe you can request me specifically for a live chat. But not for posted messages.
