    Unhappy Need advice for using Intuos 1 and Intuos 5 on same computer.

    Hello~

    I'm not actually sure if this is possible or not, but I thought it'd be worth a shot to ask.

    So, I'm on a Mac Book pro OSX 10.8.
    I just bought a medium Intuos 5 Touch with a wireless adapter to use with my laptop, but I also have a super old 9x12 Intuos 1 which still works like a charm and I was hoping to use that one still when I didn't need to be out and about.

    ...Is this in any way possible? I uninstalled the intuos 1 driver to install the driver for intuos 5, and sure enough, my older tablet no longer works when plugged in.
    Is it okay to install 2 drivers? Is there a workaround for this issue?
    Any advice would be super appreciated!

    Thanks!! >o<)/

    Well I really wouldn't advise it.

    I have an intuos4 and intuos5 I made the mistake of running them on the same computer and some reason it corrupted my preferences file.

    I have seen Wacom state iirc on the Europe forums that it wasn't a good idea to use more than one tablet with the intuos5 drivers. This may have changed with newer updates, but after that nice crash and burn I am not gonna try that again. I have too many programs with shortcuts I frequently use.

    The only other work around is a new user profile? If you are allowed multiple logons to the same Mac and one uses the intuos 5 and the other intuos

    Yeah, going to chime in here and just say, don't do it.

    Had the problem with two previous tablets that were a lot
    simpler than wacoms.

    Thank you guys so much for the advice, I'm sure you saved me a lot of trouble...

    I was wondering though...
    Well, I'm going to have parallels on my mac so that I can run Sai, if I install the other driver on windows do you think there will be any issues?

    Thanks again~

    nope, you'll be fine, they're completely independent.

    one thing about parallels you should remember is that only can use wacom tablet either with mac os or windows (no way to use them simultaneously);

    there're also some problems with cursor rendering when using wacom tablets; go to control panel, mouse options and set a small cursor trail there. it should fix this issue.
