I tried that route...it deosn't work too well, at least in my case. I wanted to adapt my CH stick,throttle and rudder pedal combo to USB so i could still use the throttle (It didn't work at all anymore once I got my new computer two yrs ago). I got one at Radio shack fairly cheap, but it was just ineffective. At the time there were others on here who tried the same thing with the same results.

Might be helpful to know what country you are in ...

Still it is only $5 I've got one to connect gameport ch pedals - works fine.

Or this is neat.

You could also buy sound card. I know that some company's produce 5.1 channel cards with gameport along. Or buy converter somwhere.

i live in Denmark,
4 dollers sounds cheap to me but if its ineffektive.
i dont care about Buying a new one,
in fackt i find that safer in case something is wrong.
