    Hi guys! I really need help!

    I have a Wacom Bamboo Fun CTH-461 with its own pen.

    Today I bought a Wacom Bamboo Fun CTE-450. Its pen got lost, so it was very cheap, and I just couldn't leave it there :)

    The problem is, I hoped my pen would be okay with my new tablet, but it can't "see" it.

    Is there any way I could use my pen on this tablet?

    I don't know if the technology the pens use is different, but the pen for the CTH-461 states that it's not compatible with the CTE-450, so most likely there's no way for it to work with it.

    Edit: apparently the only major difference is that one has 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, the other 512, which makes them incompatible.
