Question about Wacom (PTZ930AC) Graphic Tablet
I've had my Intuos3 (A4) for just over 2 months now, and it has worked pretty much ok (well, the pen has at least). But, since yesterday, the pen has been acting oddly. It is fine as long as it stays inside the range of the pad, but once it leaves it, it won't work again until I press and drag for about 15 seconds. The blue light is still on, and the mouse still works. I have restarted my computer, unplugged the tablet, reinstalled it and still it isn't fixed. If anyone can help, thanks a lot.
I have this issue and the tablet is plugged directly into the machine. I am currently diagnosing what the problem could be and suspect it's a power thing, or lack of. I also can not use the tablet during gdm as it screws it up when the a user logs into either a kde or gnome session.

I had a similar problem with the tablet not picking up the pen until I waved it around (in range) for a few seconds. I realized later that the slow response time was due to me having the usb plugged in to the monitor instead of directly into the computer... I switched and all is fine now.

The winning answer came courtesy of Mr Benedikt Schmitt of Wacom Europe, who offered the following solution: from the Windows Device Manager, disable the “Wacom Virtual Hid Driver” device. (Go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager, find the driver, right-click it and choose “Disable”.) One reboot later (welcome to Windows-land, circa 2008?), everything works as desired. Pressure and tilt sensitivity inside Photoshop still work, and the pen functions just fine in the rest of the Windows desktop. The absolute mapping makes it an absolute pleasure to point quickly and precisely. It makes my laser mouse feel rather clumsy navigating a large 24′ screen!

I had the same problem with my Intuos3 on Vista. Tech support suggested the following.
Do this.....Go to Start--->control panel---->system(in classic view)---->device manager--->click on "human interface devices"--->then click on "Wacom virtual HID driver" and right click on that and disable it. Your computer will ask you to restart and you will want to do that.
Everything works fine now.

SOURCE: wacom intuos3 pen is not working
A few hours ago Wacom released a new driver 6.1.2-5 for the Windows 7/Vista/XP operating systems. I was having the same problem. Hopefully this will be a permanent fix!
