Wacom Bamboo Tablet Help 2012-05-29 19:41:01 Reply

Okay, this thing is pretty new, considering I bought it fresh just a couple months ago from Fry's. Worked fine for a while. But now it has this weird glitch; whenever I move the tablet's USB cord the slightest while drawing, the tablet disconnects for about a second or two, then reconnects to the computer again (mind you the USB is still firm in the socket this whole time, a slight wiggle shouldn't throw it off). This, as you can imagine, really pisses me off.

Help please?

P.S. If you could, please don't immediately recommend I use their customer service. I want to see if there's an easy solution here before getting their help.

Okay, I know this isn't the most fun thread to reply to but I'd appreciate any feedback, people.

Buy the nice super expensive ones or don't expect top-notch quality.

My first considerably crappy one was $200. Eighty dollars is probably the cheapest tablet I've EVER heard of.
If you pay $80 for a tablet, you're going to get 80 dollars worth of tablet; you are going to be stuck with a worthless piece of plastic.

Try different USB ports? Your computer might be the problem. I have the same Wacom Bamboo tablet you have, and I have 0 problems with it. Nein, nada.

Other than that, make sure you disable "Hold to right click" in the Tablet options.

Prices have gone down. Wacom Bamboo is a very good purchase. Stop trying to be snub when you're really poor slob.

A) I'm just trying to point out the obvious: you get your moneys worth
B) I'm not a poor slob. Better yet, I OWN the cintiq I linked him to.

I never said I was rich, but I'm not a poor slop. Would you like me to photograph my house, or shove a gold bar up my ass? The first one I can actually show you.

fair enough.

OT, the cintiq is not a waste of money at all... if anything it's the best purchase you can make if you want a good tablet. And if, as you say, 2500 for a piece of junk can still be gained by a 'poor slob' then you should definitely got one; I've never had a single issue with it.
It's really an entirely different experience from having a separate appliance for a tablet. Drawing on the screen and being able to swivel it feels amazing and improves your ability to draw innumerably.

It's a hardware problem, none of us can fix it, try cutting it open and fixing the wires manually, I take it you won't accidentally cut the wires when opening it up.
