Question about IOGear (G-UC232A) Serial Adapter
I'm hooking up a wacom tablet to my Mac and it has the serial port to it. I bought the serial adapter GUC232A and I put in the cd and loaded the drivers, but i'm unable to use my wacom tablet. When i plug in the usb is the light on the serial port supposed to be lit?
Try installing the Wacom USB drivers on the Mac. As I understand it, this adapter is designed to interact with devices that have their own serial drivers installed--such as a PDA, cell phone, camera, etc.--not necessarily with an input device, such as a drawing tablet, game controller, or pointing device. YMMV.

The GUC232A does not require driver installation on Mac, because it's a Plug-n-Play on Mac OS 10.4.X (Tiger) and Mac OS 10.5.X (Leopard).
WACOM Tablet is known to work with the GUC232A and the light on that device would only blink once there's a data transfer or communication happening between the computer and the WACOM. It will not lit up once you just connect it to the computer.
All you have to do is to configure the COM port on your computer and try using different COM port. Usually, you will get COM4 for the GUC232A, but Mac does not really support Serial configuration, but the GUC232A is tested to work with Mac computers.
Just try using different COM ports on Mac and one of the available port should work.
