Having problems with your Saitek Aviator AV8R Joystick ?

Use of AV8R-01 with Google Maps flight simulator

\015 I am able to use my keyboard to operate the flight simulator in Google Maps, which enables you to "fly" and "land" anywhere in the world using Google Earth imagery. However, I cannot figure out how to use my Saitek AV8R-01 joystick with Google Earth's flight simulator. Every time I click on "Enable joystick" in Google Earth, it blows me out of the program. Is there a setting I need to change on my computer, to solve this problem?\015
