Question about Wacom Intuos3 4x5

Pen pressure and scale problems

Hello;
I have had my Intuos 3 tablet for 2 years. I have installed and used this tablet on several computers, both macs and PCs. I am trying to install the driver on a macbook I just purchased. I have installed the driver CD and bundled software, as well as the additional driver wacom suggests should be installed for Mac OS X computers. However, the tablet's pen pressure sensitivity does not appear to be functioning in Adobe Photoshop Elements 3, and when using the tablet as a mouse the tablet surface does not scale to the computer screen. I'm wondering if you can help me fix these problems? Thank you!

    i've got pretty much the same exact problem - had mine about 2 years and used it on a pc with no problems, but my new macbook won't recognize pressure sensitivity in GIMP (image program similar to photoshop).

    my screen doesn't scale correctly either, (although, on an occasional odd day, it will) and when i try to change the options i'm told that the tablet wasn't detected at startup. i've tried reinstalling the driver, to no avail.



    not sure what you mean by this though -"as well as the additional driver wacom suggests should be installed for Mac OS X computers"

I also use Intuos 3 tablet, did you already try replacing the tip and reconfiguring the pen to the screen? You can find this in the driver software, it synchronizes the pen and tablet.
If you already tried that, does the problem only occur in Photoshop? Also, check your brush preferences, you can go back to your default settings and see. If talking to Wacom fails, you might have a bad pen or tablet.

Does the Wacom Intuos2 Classic Pen (xp 300e) work with the Wacom Bamboo CTL 470 tablet?


From what I read on Wacom's site, they are NOT compatible.
The Bamboo use a stylus that is different than the nib pens that the Intuos use. The stylus for the Bamboo is more like the stylus you can purchase for smart phones. The Intuos pens are pressure sensitive and have different nibs you can use for different effects and feel. You can go to their website and look for compatible pens and stylus' for your specific tablet.

You may have an issue with the drivers. If you're using the drivers on the CD, try updating to the latest drivers:

If you're using the latest drivers and the issue persists, try rolling back your drivers to the previous release:

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!

Wacom tablet won't recognize pen


Hmm. I've had a similar thing happen with my tablet. Have you tried removing the tablet pen from the list of tools in tablet preferences and then adding it to the list again before checking the 'About' section of the tablet pen set-up and clicking the 'diagnose' button there in? As that worked for me when my tablet pen was not working. The pen was recognized by the tablet after that.

Wacom tablet stopped working, blue light on.


Hey I had this problem too with my Bamboo too, I'm not sure if it was anything I changed or whatever but either way the blue light was on but it wasn't registering the pen.

I found a way just minutes ago to fix it however!

Go into 'start', 'all programs', then look for 'pen tablet'. Hopefully you should have this. If not then download the latest driver for your tablet from the wacom website and that should install it.

Next choose 'pen tablet preference file utilty'. Then under 'my preferences' choose to remove. Bingo! All was well in the world again.

This worked for me so hopefully it will for some of you guys too! Good luck!
