Hey all, I have a GD-1218-R (serial) adapted to USB as an Intuos2 (i think it uses an early version of WaxBee, although i am unsure, ill have to contact Dragon sometime)

Firstly this tablet was working fine on windows 7 x64, and windows 8.1 x64, but im having issues getting it working again with windows 10 x64.

I tried basicly every driver version i could find, "WacomTablet_6.2.0w5.exe" somewhat works and will show the config menu, but the pen will not move the cursor or draw in any program.


Any ideas? thanks

YEY I found the problem!

I tried some VM's and a old windows xp machine and they all would show the tablet, but none would move the cursor, so i assumed the pen had died..
but the weird thing was the light on the tablet still lit up for all buttons on the pen, windows just didnt seem to get the message.
so i cracked the tablet open and inspected the conversion (Dragon had done some of the soldering, i finished it off when i bought it) one of the solders had broken!
searching Dragons old conversion topic i found shots of his work, and procceded to test holding the wire to the correct contact (by hand lol) and it worked!

Pretty happy right now, this is on windows 10 x64 mind you also, 6.2.0w5 driver!

This is pretty interesting actually, I thought there were plans to not support older hardware in Windows 10; I always meant to try my Intuos2 in Windows 10 but the pens I have for it are in storage so I never got the chance.

It's good to know that we can still use our legacy tablets!

Wow! great news!  I keep thinking Intuos2 does not work on Win10 - but even if not perfect, it is actually much better than nothing!

In case someone is searching the driver, I got this link from the japanese Wacom site:
