Adesso Cyber Pad,,,,how does it work?

by astright / February 9, 2012 7:00 AM PST

Someone threw out an Adesso Cyber Pad (that's the model number, Cyber Pad) that looks like it has all the parts and all the lights and digital display seems to work but I can't find a program to download to connect the Cyber Pad to the computer. The instructions say that the computer should download the program automatically but it doesn't. I have Win 7 and can't find anything for a download.

Anybody have any good ideas?

As I read I noticed how CASUALLY they had a ZIP file on the page for the drivers.

You have to ask yourself "In today's world of folk that make toast, would you expect toasters to be able to find that?"

Did you find it?

I'm sure you got it.

But a second reading would have me re-write that. Of course I could have been thinking of the toaster in Red Dwarf or BSG but you are neither (I hope.)

So, boo hoo, it doesn't work....

So I got around to trying the Cyber Pad out and the program doesn't seem to work. The computer acknowledges the program but it doesn't bring up the digital pad when the USB is plugged in. The Pad acknowledges the connection to the computer and the computer acknowledges the connection to the Pad but, as per the instruction manual:
the problem
"After connecting the digital pad to a computer, the tablet icon does not display on the computer desktop."
the solution
"a. Make sure the tablet driver has been installed.
b. The digital pad is not correctly detected by the computer. Try reconnecting the USB cable."

I installed the program yesterday, as per your link. Got any suggestions? Would there be the problem that maybe the Pad is programed for XP and won't work with Win 7? Am I SOL? I'm so Cry .

The support web page was a sign.

Not a good one. It seemed to have been done as an afterthought with no one thinking about anyone visiting to find help.

Since it does not work, I'd exorcize it and exercise the return to seller now. No need to spend time on something that appears to be inoperable.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
