PM and WACOM Tablet
« on: November 14, 2007, 03:09:29 PM »
Why is it that PM will not work properly with an Wacom Intuous table attached to the system.  I have problems with the injest function.

WIN 2K
PM 4.5.2

I have no idea.  What specifically does not work in the Ingest feature?  I'd really need a lot more information from you in order to help you.  Please provide as much detail as you can.

Hmm, I have an Intuos3 tablet and found no problems with ingest.
WinXP, PM 4.5.3 beta.

Could it be a W2K problem?

I'm using a Wacom Intus 3 on a Mac G5, a MacBookPro (both Leopard) and on a windows XP machine.

No Problems with PM.

Thanks for the reply.
The problems that I am having are;
1: ingest stats normally, then slows down, then stops,  windows may, or may not, report "Delayed Write Error".
2: then I get a "Usafe Removal of Device"
3:  PM reports that ingest has completed and will report that there have been errors ( the files that have not been ingested

I submit that this is probably a problem with W2K.  I Was curious to know if the was any known issues.

Thanks again

Kevin

I have not heard of this issue before now.  But I will say that Windows 2000 is no longer on our list of supported operating systems.  We currently support:

Windows XP SP2+
Windows Vista
Mac OS X 10.3.9 through 10.5.x

Update
I just uninstalled the WACOM driver and reloaded the driver with the lastest download.  I still have the problem.

Kevin

Kirk      Just read your last post.  Perhaps its time for me to upgrade to Win XP !!!!

Thanks for your help

It almost sounds like you have hardware conflicts between your Wacom and your disk drive.  Are you writing to a USB drive?  If I remember correctly, Win2K's USB support was sort of flakey.
