I wanted to use joystick (Saitek Cyborg-X) in Battlefield 3, but it's not working at all. The game doesn't detect it at all.

Is there any way to get it working? Flying jets with mouse isn't fun.

  • There are some people who had success activating it by deinstalling Cyborg drivers and re-plugging it, so that only Windows drivers are installed. There is also an alleged solution where you unbind every single keyboard and mouse action for the flying vehicles (jet & heli).

  • actually uninstalling drivers and installing latest downloaded from Saitek did the trick.

Try the following:

  • Uninstall your current drivers (whatever version just to be sure)
  • Install the latest drivers downloaded from Saitek.
  • Start the game and it should detect it.

    I haven't fixed the answer, because two Youtube links are useless to people without flash. Please consider adding content to the answer itself.
