Any offers welcome for this A5 graphics pad, which isn't entirely compatible with Windows 10 (so I've replaced it with a smaller Intuos.

Location is Walsall: no reasonable offer refused.

Contact me through EPZ if you're interested.

Graphire 4 can be made to work on Windows 10, but I'm not going to bother explaining the process if you've already replaced it Smile

Do you shout 'I'm just going to plug my Intuos into the computer' thereby fooling said computer into thinking it should accept it?

I explored the 'can be made to work with' avenue: I got limited functionality, and it was, frankly, not what i wanted to spend time on.

I'm happy to play with work-arounds and fudges for purely photographic stuff, but this was taking me deep into computer-geek territory. I'm not averse to technology, but we all have personal limits for everything. Sitting in front of me is an Exakta VX1000, a lovely camera, around 55 years old. With that, I can be bothered: but most people wouldn't and shouldn't.

And I simply unplugged the Graphire and plugged in the Intuos: and followed the instructions. And it works.

No, in fact the exact opposite - you have to sneak up on it and plug it the Graphire before it realises what's happening...

That's where I make the mistake.

I show it the USB plug and explain that it won't hurt, its just a plug and he has the socket for it.

Thanks, chaps. I take it that:

a) you'd recommend the Graphire tablet to potential buyers; and
b) neither of you actually have a home for it?

Sorry, I don't have a home for it. The instructions I found for getting it to work were actually just installing a very specific driver, which on my desktop worked absolutely fine. On my daughter's laptop we never could get it to work, but I think it's a problem with her USB ports.
