Can not install ArtZ tablet

I followed all the instructions in the manual but i did not have the driver disk so I went to the Wacom site and downloaded the windows XP version of the drivers. The instillation process does not recodnize that I have a tablet attached to my computer. I know that my computer is recodnizing the tablet because the light is glowing orange and when i put pressure with the pen on the surface the light turns green showing that the tablet is seemingly working properly. The only problem i have with it is the driver it does not recodnize that i havea a tablet attached.

Re: Can not install ArtZ tablet

Uninstall the Wacom software, but don't reboot just yet. If you are using a Serial to USB converter, note the port it is using. If you are serially connected, note the port also. Wacom tablets seem to only recognize ports 1-8, so you'll have to remap your port to a free one in that range. In Device Manager, select your port (you may have to click view and show hidden devices). Right click on the device to expose the Properties. Select the Port Settings tab, then the Advanced Button, then change the COM Port Number to an unused value between 1 and 8. OK you way back out. Reboot, reinstall the Wacom software, and do a manual search for the port you just assigned. Reboot to complete the installation, and you're done. The TabletService hangs if it does not get the port it thinks it should and does not stop correctly. I set mine to disabled and also disable the tablet in the control panel, just so I can avoid reboots when changing ports, but that is another question answered.

Re: Can not install ArtZ tablet

Check the port it is connected to. Wacom seems to only recognize serial ports 1-8. I use a USB to Serial adapter and had to reassign it to a lower port number from 12. Go into Device Manager, select the connected device, right click to select Properties, the the Port Setting tab, Advanced button, COM port number. Ok you way back out. uninstall the Wacom software, then reinstall it, following the reboot prompts. It loads a service that tends to hang if the device is not connected when it starts. I had started disabling the tablet and the service just so I can avoid a reboot when I change ports.

You can try the Virtual Tablet Interface from Digitizer Technology:

I haven't been able to get pressure sensitivity working in my drawing programs yet, but it does allow you to use the tablet in Windows 7.

Older ArtZ II with ADB cable won't talk to my laptop

I'm thinking this is a Mac-only tablet. The ArtZ II for Windows came with an rs232 (old mouse) port at the end of the cable, in addition to a built-in spot where the power plug attaches.You didn't mention the power plug on yours, so the Mac version of the tablet must have the power routed in through the cable.

Short answer, the reason the light isn't coming on is because the tablet isn't receiving power. If you go get a cross-platform adapter card for plugging in Mac hardware on your HP, it *might* work.

Wacom Intuos3 stopped working when I upgraded to Leopard

I did solve it myself. Having downloaded the new drivers off the Wacom website, I hadn't realised they were still sitting on my desktop waiting to be installed. Once I found the folder and opened and installed it everything worked fine!

Im using a serial to usb connector to connect my artZ II tablet to my laptop..

Sorry, I figured it out, it was because the serial to usb adapter i was using needed a driver, and then my computer recognizes it as an extra serial port. So, during installation it needed to be searched for automatically from my serial ports.

Not work

It may have installed the driver but it wont work until you install the wacom tablet software (config program).

You will find this on your disk or.. (UK site)

Wacom calls it a driver too but this is what you need to get it to work.. The windows must only detect that it is a human interface device or something.
