    Wicked Pissed : Intous 3 Question

    my tablet just altogether stops working randomly. I've had to restart my computer 3 times today in the middle of a piece. I have the latest driver from wacom and i got vista shit ass edition. Anybody else with similar problem? or better yet, any solution to it?

    My previous tablet did that, the usb cable was broken right after the connector.

    That was a shitty volito tho.

    I had that problem before long ago, i think it was the drivers, try un-installing them and installing them again. Did you had another tablet before?, maybe the problem is conflicting drivers. Maybe, the problem is photoshop? does it hang up with other software as painter?.

    Dual Boot it up with some Linux?

    I hear you can run PS pretty well on a linux machine.

    You might be thinking of Gimp[shop].

    Proprietary software like photoshop will never work in Linux.

    My opinion is to buy XP, format and wipe your hands clean of Vista.

    I mean come on, Windows 7 is due out in late '09-'10. If that's not a statement on how awful Vista is I don't know what is.

    I'm sure Wacom are aware of this issue by now, why not try to find an appropriate driver on their site? thats wt i did to avoid problems when i updated my OS Tiger to an OS Leopard.

    if you can't find an updated driver/patch, contact them about the issue maybe? good luck!

    yea the last time they updated their drivers was last september which was around the time it messed up, so i uninstalled that, and put an old one in... that didnt work. so I installed the only driver they had(thats what they told me to do on the phone ). I'll try contacting them again... Although i should just install my XP, transferring my like... 70 gb of psd files

    We, Senor Delicious, take a siesta and start transferring. It'll be worth it in the end, eh?

    Did you try un-installing and re-installing photoshop?.

    Try looking for solutions at adobe site also or other places of internets, i got this problems before and i fixed it without much trouble, i dont remember exactly how though.

    I think that's the strongest reason for buying external hard drives. I never save any work on my local hard drive. I save my local hard drive for things like video games and applications.

    Although, a good way to look at this is it's a good opportunity to organize your PSDs. Convert a bunch into high res JPEGs, ditch others, and stuff like that.

    It sucks though, I know.

    Another way to look at it is you're freeing up probably around 750 megs of RAM by 'downgrading' to XP. I dunno how much RAM your install of vista takes up, but mine consumes a whole gig with nothing running.

    FactorZero- Neat! I didn't know that. Is Wine a windows emulator for Linux or something?
