RightSideBrain is on a distinguished road

So my girlfriend is a runner at a film company and she recently got given two Wacom Intuos 2 Graphics Tablets...

I am trying to make these freebies work as I want to use them to draw on Flash Professional 8...

Problem is, I have an iMac running OS X 10.5.5. The tablet has a 9-pin serial port...

So I bought one of these on eBay...

USB 2.0 TO RS232 SERIAL DB9 9 PIN ADAPTER CABLE PDA GPS on eBay, also, Adaptors, Cables Connectors, Computing (end time 22-Feb-09 08:43:30 GMT)

I've also downloaded this...

Download Wacom Tablet Driver X 6.1.0-7 - OS X driver for many Wacom tablets. - Softpedia

But when I open the Wacom Tablet in my system preferences menu it just states - "A supported tablet was not found on this system"...

Can anyone help me get the tablet working??!

have you tried downloading this?

Apple - Downloads - Drivers - PL2303 USB to Serial Driver

it might be for a specific serial-to-usb cord though.

im not sure if yours is compatible with the driver.

you might want to also try:

Thinkyhead > TabletMagic

Please let me know if this works for you! And if it does, please send me the other tablet. haha. thanks!

Hey bebemunchies, thanks for the reply...

I downloaded both of the things you suggested and sadly still had no luck.

I guess I'm just gonna sell the tablets on eBay and try and get a USB one instead.

Thanks for the help though!
