Im using a serial to usb connector to connect my artZ II tablet to my laptop..
...and it isn't recognizing it as being there during the new version of the wacom driver setup. The computer recognizes it as being connected to the usb hub because the new hardware jumpoff pops up. I am running XP home on my PC. Thanks for any help.
Re: im using a serial to usb connector to connect my artZ...
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.

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.
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.
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........
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.
