Using/Converting a serial/adb ArtPad II for PC?

I have an old Wacom ArtPad II that uses a serial adb cable and I cannot connect it to my PC. I'm suggesting this was made for the MAC but can it be used and or converted (to usb or other ) for the PC? I desperately need an artpad and don't feel like spending more money to get a new one right now. any amount of help would be appreciated. I have the same problem. I bought an adb/usb adapter and it pysically appears to connect all right. However, there are no xp drivers for it. It can't communicate or do anything. Looks like we're stuck unless someone writes a driver.

    No, it does not. It will not recognize it. In Mac OS9, the iMate (adb/usb adapter) is supposed to work. In XP, it's a no-go until drivers are written to support it. Oh well.

Does the driver on the Wacom site work? I'm trying to do the same thing, but need administrative rights, so I haven't been able to attempt it. http://www.wacom.com/downloads/drivers.php

Can I connect my old Mac's ArtZ tablet to a new PC using ADB-to-USB adapter ?


You can try the Virtual Tablet Interface from Digitizer Technology: http://www.vtablet.com/

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.

Can you convert a serial ArtPad II to USB?


I bought usb to serial cable from ebay with driver software for less cost and then download driver from Wacom for Artpad II (KT series). My laptop is Window XP. Had both drivers installed and it works. I can start my homework with it. Really, I just use it.

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.

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.

Epson lx300+ii with serial port to fujitsu pc


use the com1, and use a baud rate like 9600, with 8 and 1 bit stop. dont. be sure that is in ESC/P or IBM as you requiered. if your software use directly the serial port, be sure that the bios set up is properly. i think that the lx300+ have less buffer than lx300+2
and if you use high speed, could loose info.

Serial to usb wacom tablet problem


I just got Vista and it killed my Intuos2 w/serial to usb also, but here's a half solution:
Download Wacom driver 4.78-6 http://www.wacom-europe.com/int/downloads/driver/driver.asp?lang=en. Make sure you remove any other Wacom drivers, tablet, and reboot. Install 4.78-6 driver and select serial port when the choice pops up. Plug in your tablet with the serial to usb adapter, wait a few seconds and click retry. Complete the install and reboot.
Your Wacom tracking should work now, but certain things might not work like pressure sensitivity and you'll get annoying error "reinstall driver" pop-ups.

I think you can aslo buy a PCI-serial card for your computer and skip the serial-usb adapter since Vista doesn't support the adapter for Wacom tablets.. but I'm not sure if there's a working Vista serial Wacom driver either.. or ever will be. The age of XP and Legacy support is at an end my friends.

2 cpu's one keyboard (adb)


Yes and no. The good thing is this will work the bad thing is the possible droping of the driver connection which rarely happens, but it is a possibility. Also if the cables use mechanical switching there are galvanic issues that may occur (and opto-isolated switch is better). However this will work. This the basic functionality of the KVM switch.
