    Ok, I'll try to keep this fairly short and understandable...

    So I got a new computer thrown together, and upgrade from my last one, and everything has been working fairly well. Ran into a few problems here and there, as there can be with computers built from scratch, but there is this one thing that isn't making any sense to me.

    I've been busy re-installing all of the programs that I like to use, like Photoshop CS2, and I am trying to install my Hanvon 5*6 drawing tablet.

    Now, I thought everything would be fine and dandy, seeing as all my other USB ports were working just fine, considering that I was able to transfer files from a flash drive and portable hard drive, but when I plugged in my tablet, an annoying bubble keeps popping up over and over and over again saying that the "USB Device is not Recognized" and all this nonsense about the device has malfunctioned.

    I know well that my tablet is working just fine, because I plugged it into my brother's computer and it found the tablet like it should and installed it and worked just fine after installing the drivers.... So, why should my computer not recognize the tablet ether?

    In short, my computer refuses to recognize my tablet, but it can use other things, like portable hard drives, flash drives, and my keyboard, just fine without complaining, (Note that my tablet fine works on other computers) and I have the tablet drivers installed and everything.

    Anyone have a solution to this problem?

    My computer has Windows XP Professional, and should be updated all the way.

    if you goto device mangaer is it listed there - it may be worth plugging it in - see if listed and then uninstall and re-instal the drivers

    I've tried that, but it only lists it as an Unknown Device and when I tell it to update drivers, it can never find any, even if I tell it to search from my driver CD or from where the drivers were installed...
    And I've uninstalled and re-installed the drivers several times, and it did nothing.

    Edit: And when the computer does not recognize my tablet, is it suppose to keep popping the stupid bubble up over and over again? @[email protected] It hides the message, then pops it up again without me even touching it... And its kind of annnoying...
