    Hi everyone.
    I have been lurking the forum for a bit.
    On my old panasonic cf-18 mk1 hdd died. Ordered new one, installed win 7 on it.
    Followed a guide here on this forum, followed every steps. Drivers are installed.
    Even front hotkeys works.
    The problem is I have no idea how to make the digitizer work...
    Digitizer in BIOS is set to enable, every driver from the guide is installed.
    Even tried to download wacom drivers but im getting "no tablet detected" when trying to open thier application.

    Before hdd died digitizer was working fine.
    Any solution?

    Thanks!

    Were you using windows 7 on it before? Link to the exact guide you used. You may have up zip the wacom drivers then going to device manager and installing it that way. Full model number of your 18.

    I used that guide.
    Nope, there's was windows 7 before but I was installed by someone else way before i got it.

    I dont think it will works, as wacom drivers are .exe that install itself.

    Some exe files are really self extracting archives. So just download 7zip (it's very good, very light weight and free) then right click and tell it to extract. If it can't, it won't. No harm at all.

    B - Pentium 900MHz ULV (Centrino) 802.11b+g
    E - 10.4 XGA Digitizer+Black Cabinet
    L - 40GB HDD - 512MB RAM
    01-Panasonic Customer Configuration Number
    M - Windows XP Pro Tablet PC
    E - non North America (U.K.)

    I am going to re-read though the thread link you posted on the install and report back when I can. It's been a while since I have had a 18, I am up to a 19 Mk3,4,5 now.

    Been messing with extracted wacom drivers but no luck.
    Anyway, in device manager when I install CF-19 KL mouse drivers(as it says in the guide) im getting "touchpad/touchscreen" with the warning sign in details: this device cannot start error 10
    Im running out of ideas

    Does it have a touchscreen or a digitizer?

    I'm guessing it doesn't like that driver, the 18B is an old unit. I'm also betting if you live boot Linux the digitizer will work, just a matter of finding a driver it likes.

    Just my 2 cents...that's going to be slow as dirt on Windows 7, I have a core solo motion computing tablet I run peppermint Linux on as it will barely run XP. It was new in the box and runs pretty good on Linux. Just a thought.
