Hello, I am running Photoshop CS5 Extended on my Windows 7 64bit. I recently decided to try a new drawing tablet i got, a rather "offbrand" one. It is the Auro II, made by a company called braVod. While the tablet works great, in Photoshop i cannot get the pressure sensitivity to work. Photoshop is up to date, and I have the latest driver for the graphics tablet (that being said, it was rather difficult to find any driver for the tablet online...). I was wondering if anyone else even has this tablet, and if anyone could help with this issue. I really dont want to spend ANOTHER chunk of money on yet another graphics tablet.
I read the other forum threads with similar problems of pressure sensitivity not working, and the problem was usually solved by updating drivers or reinstalling the driver and rebooting. Neither of these solutions has worked for me.
Also to clarify, this was not a super cheap crappy tablet. Its not a Wacom, sure, but the reason i got this tablet was because it was a better deal than the Wacoms for the size, and its power is definitely comparable. I am simply having trouble having Photoshop recognize the pressure sensitivity on the dang thing.
Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks.
Have you tried to update the Driver for this tablet recently? The drivers on BraVod's site do not appear to be dated.
There could be some very good reasons why so many people stick with a WACOM tablet and they are based on performance, reliability and customer support … and not Sales Spec. Sheets.
If your Tablet does not perform as advertised, return it to Seller.
I cant return it, it was bought on ebay over a year ago. I got the most up to date driver for the tablet that i could find, like i said. I understand that Wacom is a reliable company, but when money is tight and you need a working space larger than tiny (which is the problem i have with most wacom tablets >$1000), you go with what you can afford. But im not on here to talk about what i should have gotten. Im here to figure out how to get the tablet that i do have to work. Its completely fine except for the pressure sensitivity in Photoshop, as Photoshop says it does not recognize that a pressure-sensitive tablet is plugged in at all.
You're seeing a bug in the tablet driver, or a lack of updated driver (for some reason some of the knockoff tablet drivers need to be updated for each release of Photoshop - we don't know why).
You'll have to contact the tablet vendor for an updated driver.
