: It appears that there are an overwhelming amount of ppl out there looking for drivers or other software for this beast.....my personal opinion, there is none.

: it seems that the device emulates other digitizers which is why there are 4 dips on the back, depending on how they are set will tell your software what digitizer is sending the data.

: Here is some of the switch settings I've come across, have not yet had time to test them, but it might also be prudent to find the specific device drivers for the ones that the HP beast is emulating.
