    WACOM INTUSO A4 OVERSIZE - GD 1212-R

    If I were to get hold of a serial to USB connector, would this run on a modern mac?

    Yes it would,with the help of:



    http://tabletmagic.sourceforge.net/

    also be careful of the adaptor you get (it depends on which chipset is in it )
    Maplins have one for around £16 that works fine.Although your particular tablet is not listed as having been tested I'm pretty sure it'll work.Some fiddling about with settings is necessary but mine now works fine.

    Just curious, if the OP is still on these forums...how well does TabletMagic seem to work? Is performance reasonably good while using it in Photoshop?

    Also, do you still need the AC power adapter plugged in to the end of the Wacom serial cable when using a serial-to-usb adapter?

    I have one of these tablets - does this succesfully work with a new mac book pro and snow leopard?
