Re: Saitek 3D Gold manual
The buttons do what you want them to do. The stick is programmable. Most games allow you to map the joystick controls the way you want. With others, you can map them with the Saitek software. Download the drivers and software at:

The joy stick comes with a CD. Put the CD on the tray, and let the computer runs the software. On the CD there are driver for the joy stick itself, and driver for the USB . click on install joystick, after that, click on install the USB drive. that is it. Then a test screen will appear and asks you to check your joystick movements and buttons .push on the buttons,on the joystick, and you will see that they turn red on the computer screen each time you push a button, meaning your computer reads the commands from the joystick, You are set.
If you do not have the CD, then go to the Logitech site. and go to support, and from there you can download the drivers for the joystick.
You need to completely remove the calibration you have done. uninstall the driver, reboot and then connect stick back up. Follow on-screen prompts for the driver disk and reinstall. Check there are no conflicts in the sticks own software once installed, then calibrate it.

Because of these limitations I had to learn to used the keyboard buttons to fly planes & choppers in the pc game - GTA:SA.
I plan to buy the pc game GTA4 as soon as it goes down in price of it's current $20 & buy a...
Saitek Cuborg Graphite Joystick PS21 that is newer and uses a USB connection.
No download disk is required. Your PC will automatically 'find' the joystick after it has been plugged into a USB port.
You can just about play any flight sim with this joystick, jat, prop plane or helicopter. The buttons do what ever you program them to do through your game's control settings.
