    Is it possible to find an adapter that will work with an older Wacom Graphics Tablet with an ADB port? I love my tablet and just can't see purchasing a new one (the prices are just too high). I just can't seem to find an ADB to USB converter. Any thoughts?

    Wow that is great, but I am not so sure it will work:

    Mac: Mac OS 9.1 or greater, Mac OS 10.3.9 or older, USB port

    I am running OS 10.4.11 -

    Anyone out there using this?

    Yes I did this, with a PPC and used tabletmagic I also had to find a serial to usb at a second hand mac store to connect the old tablet to the Mac with software. It worked ok, not sure about a ADB to usb port. Spending the cash on a new one would be the easiest thing to do, but yea its hard to drop 300+ when you are trying to save $

    Thanks! I think I will try that. I found an ADB to USB and now I'll go ahead and get it.

    I just hate spending money on every new thing... being a Mac owner has always been an expensive habit!
