Mine is a Razer Nostromo not Belkin
All I did was install the v1.03 software on the system and it started working. You may try remove all traces of the v2 software from the PC, and also go into the system devices and remove any razer nostromo devices you find (check the box to remove the drivers as well), then reinstall 1.03. Otherwise if that doesn't work, you may have to wait for Razer to get on the ball and get drivers released (but they seemed to indicate to me that they wouldn't have anything out until after 8 was officially released to the public).
I have also come into the same problem as the rest of you with Win8. I've tried contacting Razer with a similar outcome. I have installed the 1.03 driver and the software does run; however, I will add that I am having an issue with the macro function. No matter what the delay is that I choose between macro'd keystrokes, the timing is always the same. Although it is nice to have it working, the lack of this feature is debilitating. Have any of you experienced the same problem with a successful 1.03 driver install in Win8?
i have 2.02 drivers up and running without any troubles.
device is razer nostromo (not belkin) with firmware 1.02
simply installed driver and it works (it was a couple of months ago, just after installing win8 - release preview).
also worked flawlessly with w8 CP.
do u have it connected directly to port on your motherboard, or through any hub or sth?
i found that some devices don't work correctly when connected through a hub or ports in my pc case (on windows8, w7 was ok)
I can plug it in and it work too, BUT I can't run the 2.02 version and actually PROGRAM the pad. Try running the Nostromo application and see if it sees the pad, or if it says there's no Razer Nostromo attached...
If all you're using is the default programming it'll work just fine with 2.02, otherwise you'll have problems with it detecting (I've tried every version I could get my hands on, and the only version that I could find that worked is the linked v1.03 version above).
So happy to find that I'm not the only person suffering from this. I kinda got the impression that the Nostromo was something of a fringe device, and the number of owners who were also W8 early adopters would be tiny.
But anyways, if this works I'd be overjoyed. Only thing is, I can't get any of the download links posted to work. If someone were to host this on dropbox or something I'd be eternally grateful.
I'm also having the same trouble with my Naga, so if anyone has the old drivers for that (which would hopefully work the same way), I think that would make my double rainbow.
Curiously, these problems only arose when I got Pro version, they both worked absolutely fine on the release preview.
*Update* Managed to find version 2.01 of the Naga driver, but the old Nostromo drivers remain elusive.
*Update 2* After a few days searching, finally found someone posted a link to a hosted version. I re-uploaded to my dropbox for the benefit of any future unfortunates: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/42363058/Ra...iver_v1.03.zip

Having same issue. I just did the retail upgrade to Windows 8 Pro and now my Nostromo isn't recognized by the configuration app ver 2.02. Ver 1.03 does work but as mentioned before there are delay issues and its sometimes craps out when 2+ macros going at once.
yes, drivers really need to get updated, they have got their synapse up and going, so my Naga works fine, also unable to find the older drivers, guess ill have to try use my keyboard?
