Bamboo Tablets are a line of affordable graphics tablets produced by Wacom. The Wacom Bamboo Tablet is designed to support multi-touch features, precise pen input and gestures, according to Wacom. Just like any other input device or computer peripheral, the Bamboo Tablet's features will not function properly until the correct driver software is installed. Installing the correct driver package for Windows XP is crucial to having full access to the functions offered by the Bamboo Tablet.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Visit the Wacom home page (see Resources). Click on your location and select your preferred language. For example, click “Americas” and select “English.”

  2. 2

    Click “Downloads” in the navigation bar. Select “Hardware Drivers.” This directs you to a page to locate the necessary drivers for your product.

  3. 3

    Select your model of Bamboo Tablet from the drop-down menu beneath the “Step 1” heading. Highlight “Windows XP” as your operating system beneath “Step 2.” If you are running the 64-bit version of Windows XP, select “Windows XP 64 Bit.” You will automatically be directed to a download page for the necessary driver installation package.

  4. 4

    Click the most recently released driver version from the returned search results. Press “Download” and select “Save” or “Run” in the confirmation prompt. If you choose to save the installation package, select and launch the downloaded file after it is saved.

  5. 5

    Click “Run” in the driver installation prompt. Accept the license agreement for the Wacom Bamboo Tablet drivers. Click “OK” after the installation process is complete and click “Restart Now” to restart your computer. Click the “Start” button and click “Shut Down” if you are not prompted to restart your computer. Your Wacom Bamboo Tablet will function properly after the system is restarted.
