Trouble with Bamboo tablet

I recently fixed my Bamboo Pen and Touch (the drivers were outdated) that I haven't used in a while. I downloaded GIMP in hope of a program that would work with pressure sensitivity and not cost a fortune. After some frustration with not knowing how to set up the tablet with GIMP, I was able to figure out how to get it working through these forums. However, the eraser is now working as the pen and the actual pen tip is zooming in. How can I fix this?

Any information that you might need is below:

Windows 7 64 Bit
GIMP 2.8
Bamboo Pen and Touch with newest drivers as of 7/30/14

RE: Trouble with Bamboo tablet
Select a new tool in the Toolbox with the tablet itself....

In practice you currently have three pointing devices rights now: the mouse (or the combination of the mouse/pad/trackpoint if you have a laptop), the first tip of your tablet stylus (the one which is pressure sensitive) and the second tip of your stylus. Each device is associated with a different Gimp tool, which is the one you select using that particular pointing device.

If this isn't sufficient to help, do Windows>Dockable dialogs>Device status and post a screenshot.
