Quick question for Wacom Intuos3 users. Lately I have been having issues with the tablet just not recognizing the pen in the middle of my working in Photoshop. The only way I've managed to fix it is to reinstall the driver but its just a temporary fix. Later on in the day it'll happen again. I read in a forum about installing an older version of the Wacom driver but it still doesn't fix the issues. Any thoughts?

it was doing that to me, I bought an intuos 4 and it still does it. I literally have the driver saved to my desktop so i can just install it quickly when it does it. Mine also does the thing where lines will shoot across the screen or it wont let go when I click. dont get it. different computer and different model tablet, same issues.

Not sure what to tell you

It's gotten better since my husband messed with my USB settings. Still messes up from time to time but it's much more manageable.

I have to restart my comp every so often as well.

Never did find a permanent fix.

A lot of times I can go into the Wacom Tablet Settings File Utility and click "Remove" on my preferences and that usually does the trick. My tablet prefs are pretty middle of the road though, if you've got a lot of specific settings, it might not save you a lot of time over reinstalling.

Let me know. I've seen it work for both Macs and PCs on a variety of operating systems.

What sort of computer are you using? Just asking because I haven't had any problems recently with my tablet and MacBook.

I am using a PC. Everything else works just fine, its just randomly the past week or so my tablet stops recognizing the pen and I have to restart or reinstall the Wacom driver.

Do you copy and paste things into Photoshop at all? Even just for color refs and such? They were having problems with that - but the fix for it is just to save and reload Photoshop and the pen should be re-recognized. It's still an issue with my Intuos4 but it started with the 3 series.
