Medion Design USB Graphics Pad P46000

July 31, 2008 at 1:35 am 12 comments

I recently purchased a graphics tablet from an Aldi’s supermarket, code  MD85637.  While the manual said that Vista did not need drivers installed, I did find it somewhat flakey on my 64 bit Vista.  I also tried to install the included drivers on a 64 bit XP install, with no success.  I checked the support site and emailed the support team.  While I got a quick response it was that there was no 64 bit support.  Further searching for support found a reference to the pad being a rebadged AIPTEK Hyperpen 12000U.  These drivers did not work and when I looked at the product description, it did not look like the same pad.  Further searching on the AIPTEK website did show that the pad I bought looked very much like their Slim Tablet 600U and the drivers for this tablet:

Seemd to work and the included software utilites also then installed and work.

    Heya,

    I got this tablet also, and had issues with Vista64.

    However, I had put it down to me running dual monitors… I’ll try installing the drivers off that site & see how i go!

    Wish me luck!

    Thanks!
    That link now has a new driver pack v3.43 for June 2009 that works on the 64/32bit versions of vista/Windows 7

    Tablet works sweet in Windows 7 RC, it has much better support for tablets off the bat.

    We just got one of these p46000 for our XP and WIN98 machines. ON XP the driver only worked until after the first reboot. After that, no dice (even after a reinstall). NOthing will get the XP machine to see that tablet and use it.

    On WIN98 the tablet driver install crashed the whole machine to a BSD. When you try and boot you cannot get windows (not even in safe mode) and can only get a command prompt if you skip windows entirely. That install does something very bad at a low level, that messed with even a safe boot. The boot log says that there is a “Load Fail” in “GDI32.DLL” and all I have been able to research says that this has to do with the systems display, and when it isn’t a font problem (it isn’t) then there is no recovery other than a clean install of windows.

    We tried rolling back the registry and that didn’t do it.

    As far as we can tell there is no recovery from this other than a clean install (and the loss of irreplaceable software used for work). Don’t you love bad companies with crappy installs that destroy your OS? Either the thing was never supposed to work in WIN98 (and does not check your OS version on install) or it is the least debugged install in the history of windows (and that is waying something).

    I got this and not only did it not work, but it also caused conflicts with my graphics software (gimp) and several other programs. It happened on my vista 64 bit and xp 32 bit. I can’t stress how badly you should not buy, or install the drivers.

      I don’t know. As it is a USB device, so long as there are drivers for it, it should be.

    I recently bought a new HP laptop with Windows 7, I have been using the Medion P4600 graphics pad for years on my Compaq laptop with Windows XP. Is the P4600 compatible with Windows 7? If not is there a comparable graphics pad that would be compatible with Windows 7?

      I have found that the tablet works just from plugging it in and letting Windows find the drivers. I have done this with both my 64 bit Windows 7 laptop and the Windows Server 2008 R2 computer I use in the class room.
