Genius Pensketch 9 x 12 hangs in photoshop

I recently purchased a Genius PenSketch 9 x 12 tablet. It works great in every program, except photoshop. It will draw the first line, sensing pressure, etc. no problem, but when I try to start a new line, photoshop hangs for a while before it allows me to draw again. I have searched through Genius' help and forums, and haven't successfully found the solution. Anyone here have any idea? I am using CS2 on a quad G5 Mac with 4.5 gigs of Ram. Latest OS X and Photoshop updates have been installed. And, like I said, the tablet works without any lag or delay in every other application.

If anyone can offer a suggestion, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks

Does it hang on every tool in photoshop? I never use the smudge tool, cause it is so slow.

Download the 9.02 update if you have not already and resetting your preferences

With any tool. Paintbrush, eraser, extract filter, etc.

9.02 update for photoshop or the tablet?


thanks,

9.02 is for photoshop (CS2 is version 9). If your tablet software has an update download that also.

I've downloaded the updates, and it hasn't done anythign to alleviate the problem. Any other suggestions? It seems like it is a RAM issue of sorts, so I am wondering if the Disable VM-Buffering plug-in I've installed to utilize the 4.5 gigs of ram is somehow messing with it. If anyone has any solutions, I would GREATLY appreciate it!

Thanks,

Your problem may be with the tablet driver - are you using the Genius OS X driver?

Genius Pensketch tablets only had Windows drivers until just recently:

There is a Mac OS X driver for download on their main website:

It is a V1.0 release, so there may well be a few bugs...
If you are using this driver send them some User Feedback :)

I would be very interested to know how you get on, I'm considering a load of these large tablets for a VFX lab I'm setting up. It has to work on Mac Photoshop though!
