    I thought my Belkin n52te, was working, because the existing profile is still working. But after reading this thread I checked to if the programming software was working and like the OP it isnt. I have the later Belkin software/firmware

    Yeah, the n52te has one advantage over the Razer, it's got nvram, it'll store the profiles you save to it. The Razer Nostromo doesn't have nvram, so it has to be loaded every time you use it/boot the machine. I can't tell you how many times in the past 2 months I've started up in game, only to find that the pad wasn't programmed. Just firing up the software is all it takes to get it functional though. Can't help you on the software for that model, as I don't have one anymore .

    I'm glad I didnt buy the Razer one when this one developed a bad button. This is too bad. i doubt Belkin will do anything. they haven't supported this for a long time.

    I guess harware vendors are going to drag their feet on some things.

    Here's the email I got from Razer today:
    Greetings Vincent
    Thank you for contacting Razer Support. My name is Nizam & I shall be assisting you with the case involving Razer Nostromo

    As I understand it, the Razer Nostromo is no longer working after the Windows 8 upgrade. If this is not correct, please let me know

    As of currently, Razer Nostromo is not yet compatible with Windows 8. However, the Windows 8 driver for Razer Nostromo is currently in the making & due to be released in November 2012. For list of complete items to be supported for Windows 8, please refer to this link : Razer Support

    The reason why it was detected in the consumer preview as that particular version is not the final product of the operating system. Same goes to when the Windows 7 was first launched

    We do appreciate your patience & also your continuous support.

    Thank you & have a nice day
    Also this came back on Facebook before the email response:

    Nice. I looked further and realized that I had installed Razer Nostromo and when I looked to see if it was working of course it was not. Then today looked for the Belkin n52te software and it is there and working fine for programming.

    Good to know razer is still supporting it.

    Hello everyone, i have the same problem. I tried all i found in this thread, installing 1.03 also don't work for me.
    So i solve this problem in a bit different way, this manual for those who installed 1.03, but it also don't work.

    Step 1. Open Ctrl Panel -> Devices & printers and find Nostromo, hit properties button

    Step 6. select "install from disk" and click "browse"
    Click image for larger version

    Step 7. In opened window go to Razer Nostromo folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Razer\Nostromo\) and find "driver32" or "driver64" folders, choose one depending on your system. You will see one file called "T2Fltr.inf", choose it and hit "Open"

    Apply all and you done

    Hope it helps anybody.
    I also tried this method for 2.xx driver, but unfortunately it's didn't work for me, but you can try anyway
    Good luck

    That was one of the methods I tried for the 2.0x drivers as well, same results. They are supposed to have drivers out for the Nostromo this month, so hopefully not much longer and we'll have official support, and faster macros again..

    New release for Windows 8 is up:

    http://dl.razerzone.com/drivers/Nost...iver_v2.05.exe

    *EDIT* Once installed, the program says that it's version 2.03. It won't detect your Nostromo UNLESS you run it as administrator (at least on a Win8 x64 system), but once you do that it programs and works fine.

    Might have been all the crap they were getting on their Facebook page about not having the drivers up by their own deadline too..
