I have a Macally Icecad tablet. It is installed on my Macbook Pro, OS X 10.4.11.

Here is the problem:

1. I cannot change the options of the pen. I always loads same unchanged values;
2. I cannot run the uninstall script coming with tablet. The script freezes;
3. The driver is not meant for OS X 10.4, but only for OS X 10.3 and above;
4. There is no newer driver on the Macally web site.

Please, advise!

    HI Asen,

    Considering the Icecad has such limited compatibility with Tiger, you might want to look at Wacom.

    No harm if you can fix it and make it run. But in as much as it's not an Apple product I don't know what you want here. Contact Macally.

    Hello,

    "We have no plan to release Intel-based Mac drivers for iMediakey, NetKey, RFKey, KeyPoint, BizScan, IceCad and iShock II. " <-- from the Macally.com site

    Apparently Macally does not intend on supporting the Icecad for Tiger or beyond to the Intel based Macs. Without a driver (software), I'm sorry, but it seems like you're out of luck.

    Sig suggested you contact Macally ... go to their site and click on their Tech Support button.
