Problems with BT and Saitek Throttle and Trim Wheel Modules

Recommended Posts

I have the B-25 BT installed into my FSX.  I haven't used it in a long time because I have been focused on many GA aircraft.

 

Last weekend I was at the Comox Air Show and got to have a first hand look at a restored B-25 Mitchell, this has caused me to want to fire up my MAAM version in FSX again.

 

Since I first bought and installed the BT I have bought Saitek Yoke, Throttle set, Trim Wheel, Multi Switch panel and Pro pedals.

 

For some reason my trim wheel and throttle set are not working properly.  Trim doesn't work at all and the throttle works but pitch and mixture are not working.

 

I went into the assignment settings and tried to set or reset them and I can't get anything assigned to those functions in the BT.

 

Is someone able to provide me with some insight into why my Saitek flight hardware isn't working properly with the BT.

Well that was interesting.

 

Tried several other planes and found out that for some reason I lost all my Saitek settings for buttons, joystick etc.

 

Spent an lengthy period resetting my controls, including reinstalling drivers, and control panels etc.  Everything is fixed now.

 

My assumption is that when my darling dog started chewing on a connecting USB cord and pierced through to the wires that somehow this caused the problem, I don't know how but otherwise I can't figure it out.

Likely shorted out or severed the USB wires, thus the computer could no longer detect the device.
