    Make it a little clearer:

    I baught a Saitek ST30 today, plaugged it in and raring to get flying..got into my game, played for about 2 mins then my computer restarted. At first i tohuth i had some kind of virus, so i scanned with all i had and got nothing. So i tried again, and again and again, so many restarts. I did a system restore back to a few days to go too see if i had done anything that would muck it up, but its still restarting. There are no drivers as its plug and play (Other than the MS ones, which i do have installed). Now i have taken my Joystick out, i can run with out crashes, but i really want/need to use my joystick. Ive tried my USB hub, the USB slots in the front and back panels, same result for all of them.

    Thanks.

Try uninstalling the joystick both physically and the driver then reboot. Open the game after the reboot and see if the computer restarts. If it does, then it may be something other than the joystick. I would also try other games if at all possible.

    Unfortunately I cannot find too much information on your Saitek ST30. I did read one review from someone that said they were experiencing random reboots as well when using this device. There are no drivers posted on Saiteks website due to the fact that it is a generic driver that windows already uses. I can only wonder if there is an incompatibility issue with vista, or you have a resource conflict with the joystick. Check the properties of the joystick in device manager and make sure that there are no conflicts. If everything appears fine, I would take your joystick back and get a different one. Thankfully it is a cheaper stick. Sorry!

I have new Saitek Aviator AV8R-01 Joystick. I want to use it on my MAC Book Pro Computer. I do not see a file for MAC on the provided CD. Will it still work ?


Unfortunately for the moment Saitek does not have any drivers for Mac.

They say they are under development and they are expecting them somewhere this year...

Even so, the most basic functions should work by plug and play since this joystick is a DirectX device.

Hope it helps...

Not working with windows 7


You can download the driver software from the Saitek website, here's the link http://www.saitek.com/uk/down/drivers.php
Just select Joystick in the first drop down box, then your version of windows 7 (32 or 64 bit) then just follow the instructions to download your drive.
Install the driver before you plug in yours joystick (the driver will more than likely ask you to plug it in at some point in the install process).
I hope this help you out.

Saitek AV8R-01 Joystick - How to install?


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.
