Problems with Graphire4 tablet on Windows 7.

I'm sorry, I'm having such a problem with my Graphire4 tablet and Windows 7. It installs just fine, and the pen works over the workspace but the tracking is wrong and no ammount of setting and restarting will fix this. So I downloaded the Windows 7 driver from the Wacom website, installed it and now my tablet won't even recognise my pen! What's happening? Does anyone know? And does anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks.

SOURCE: My Tablet pen wont release, it acts like im clicking and holding

I'm just gonna pass on a email from Tech Support I recieved. 

"It sounds as though your pen has pressure in proximity. This is present when the tip sensor of your pen is stuck down causing the pen to think that it’s clicking before it’s even touching anything. What you may want to try would be to remove the nib from the tip end of the pen, it pulls straight out with a pair or tweezers or your teeth, and leave that out overnight with the pen left on its side. Place the nib back in the morning and if the issue persists then you may have a defective pen tip."

The rest consists of personal info and warranty advice so I'll leave it there.

SOURCE: Wacom CTE-440 Graphire4 tablet is drawing when I don't want it to

Ok so I called costumer service because mine was doing the same thing. Apparently the pressure sensor in the pen is stuck down. What you do is remove the pen tip with tweezers, blow in the open end of pen, then tap the pen (open end down) in a table to get any debris out of there. Then just put the tip back in and give it a try. That did the trick for me. Hope this helps.

Graphire4 Vista


Vista doesn't support many things.. you need to see if you can find a driver for it or revert back to XP, or get a new graphics tablet

Graphire4 Tablet not reading pen


If you are on a Windows Vista machine, you need to delete your preference files for your tablet driver. The issue you are experiencing is likely due to a corrupt prefs file, which in my case was what caused the problems specifically in photoshop.

When downloading a driver online for my wacom, and then installing this problem....


Try this link, and see if these work better. ftp://ftp.wacom-europe.com/pub/WINDOWS/cons5.03-3_int.exe This is straight from the European site. If it still gives ya problems use winRAR and extract the files to a Temp Dir, and run the setup from there.

Wacom Graphire 4 Silver 6x8 CTE 640 Driver Problem in Windows 7 and Vista A few weeks ago I had just ended my streak of using Windows XP (Reinstalling it just about every month) for quite a few years. I have been using my Wacom Graphire 4 6x8 (Model: CTE-640) pen tablet for 3 or 4 years flawlessly with the same Windows XP drivers that came on a disk with the product. Now that I'm using Windows 7 with and have the correct Windows Vista drivers for this tablet, I'm running into a problem. When I install the Windows Vista drivers, at first the tablet is fully functional and working properly in every way, but after a single restart, the use of the pen is mapped at an incorrect space starting at the top left corner of the screen and the tablet mouse just locks at the top left corner completely, almost as if I'm holding the pen at the top left pixel and trying to move the mouse, which results in nothing but a constant refresh of the mouse's position at the very top left pixel on the screen. When I reinstall the Wacom pen tablet Vista drivers, the tablet then works until I restart, and the cycle repeats. The problem first emerged after I used the tablet on a different PC that had Windows XP set on a resolution that had a wide screen aspect ratio (16:9). The reason I mention this is because it ONLY started happening after this one usage, and the incorrect mapping is also at a widescreen aspect ratio that looks a lot like the 16:9 aspect ratio on the Windows XP machine I was using it on. At first I figured that this is just another Vista compatibility issue with their drivers, but then started leaning toward the fact that it could be a firmware issue (if it has some sort of firmware) in the pen tablet itself, since the only time that this tablet had been used with a 16:9 aspect ratio was just before the problem had started. Maybe that's why it's not mapping correctly? Anyways, any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated. If you need me to clarify/add any information about the problem, just ask. Thanks in advance! - CheeseKeg.
