Dear GRASSusers,
we have a problem in using a Calcomp 9500 digitizer. We hope somebody can 
help us.  Here the situation:

6) Running v.digit, the list of "Available digitizers" includes the 
   "Calcomp digitizer, format 23 (binary)".
   Next screen shows that "Selected digitizer is: Calcomp".
   Everything worhs OK until the question: "Shall we continue? [y]". 
   Answering "y" the digitizer send a 'bip', the screen freezes and there
   is no way to go on.


We have a Calcomp 9500, and occasionally run into the same response, but it 
only occurs if the digitizer is either 
                A> turned off when answering "y" to the "shall we continue"
                B> turned on, but the keypad is not resting on the digitizer
tablet when answering that question.

In response to Aldo's question - perhaps you should try running the routine
and make sure the digitizer is on and the keypad is resting on the tablet.

Hope this helps,
