Does anyone have one of these?

If so can you tell me how it connects to your PC? Someone has called me how asking how to do it, and can't really describe the options to me!

Via USB.

I think normally you run the cd and when it says looking you plug in the usb connection.

Oh yes and you need to put the batterys in the pen and mouse and place them on the tablet before installing the software.

is serial port or usb .if from serif will think it will be serial as i intalled one for a friend at xmas from them
first connect it to the serial port ,then unplug keyboard then plug the hyprpen in there then plug the keyboard into the extension from the hyperpen.
if win 98 or me then put cd in and install driver ( if it is xp) you can get the driver for it here
click here
do not use the cd if it is xp cause if you install 98 driver windows might not start

I'm told its got two connections. One seems to be for the serial port and the other a PS/2. Unfortunatly the laptop its going on doesn't have a PS/2. Any ideas if a converter to USB for teh PS/2 will work?

Just checked the Aiptek site.There appears two troubleshooting sections.One is for USB and the other click here is for the serial port model. Apparently there are about six/eight HyperPen model types in circlulation.
