I bought a new Saitek Throttle Quadrant today (With A USB Connector) and installed the Drivers on the enclosed CD...
It asked me at the time if I wanted to download the Programming Software and I chose not to, as I seem to remember someone saying "Not" to, as there were some problems...???
Well I recalibrated everything because the Yoke, Throttle and Rudder Pedals would not operate...?
I programmed the buttons as I wanted on the new Throttle Quadrant and "Tested" it, but The Throttle Quadrant and Rudder Pedals will not work now...???
Should I re-set all the "Defaults" for all the Saitek Controls I have attached...???
My old Throttle Quadrant was the one that originally came with the Saitek Yoke & Throttle Package & PS2 connector, and everything worked fine...
*I bought a new Throttle Quadrant because a "Pin" broke off of the PS2 connector*
If anyone know of anything online or can help me at all, I sure would appreciate it as I`ve waited for 4 weeks to get the new Throttle and itching to "Fly"...!!!
Thanks in advance...

Check their site and see if they have newer driver downloads than you have on your CD.
If so I would delete the old and in with the new.
Be sure to check that It's made for your operating system.

If you still have doubts email or call them.
