Question about Wacom Intuos2 Grip Pen (XP-501E) Digital Pen
I am currently running Mac OS X 10.4.11 and am using a Wacom Intuos 2. I have tried installing the newest drivers and the computer will not respond to the tablet. After buying a new cable (on a different forum i read that this was the problem) as well as uninstalling and reinstalling all of the drivers and software, I still cannot get anywhere. In the system Preferences tab under "Wacom Tablet" it says "A supported tablet was not found on the system"
Can anyone help?

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.

I had the same problem. Repairing permissions didn't help, but deleting old software and reinstalling new WACOM software did. Thank you, Swedey! :o)

Searched for ages to find a driver for my giant wacom (UD-1212-R) on Vista 64. As of this moment there isn't one, and it looks like they are not even going to bother. But if there are any geniuses out there........

SOURCE: Wacom Intuos 3 problems
Just talked to WACOM USA about a similar (but not exactly the same) problem with my Intuos 3. One of their procedures was;
go to the ALL Programs directory,
go to the the WACOM TABLET directory
open the WACOM Tablet Properties window
click on the "About" button
while holding down the CTRL key, click on the "Diagnose" button
click on the "recalibrate" button
go to the All Programs Directory
go to the WACOM Tablet Directory
click on the :WACOM Table Preference File Utility"
Under "My Preferences" click on remove
