    I have a USB handwriting pad that I can use my finger or a pen or anything to write with. It behaves just like a mouse where if I move my pen left, it will move my mouse left. I want to turn this into a handwriting tablet using software compatible with Windows Vista. The pad has a handwriting function in XP, but there is no driver/software for Vista and the pad is detected as a tablet. Specifically, this is a Penpower Jr 5.0 Silver and I want to turn it into what i was meant to be -- a handwriting tablet in input text. Is there any software you guys would recommend?

    As far as I know, you'll just have to wait for the Vista driver to come out. :( It would have to be a huge product out there for people to actually take the time to create some hacked drivers on their own for it.

    the writing pad is one of those mass produced ones on ebay and most users speak Chinese, and I don't know Chinese so I'm not sure how to get these drivers.
