    y would you want that thing? It's just a joystick port-to-USB. Very few devices uses the joystick port anymore. New joystick/joypad/perferial all uses USB.

    I'm not sure what you're looking for.

    oh
    sorry to confuse u
    i am using it to interface with stock steering wheel control stick on my car.
    it functions in a similar way to the sony commander stick RM-X2S and hence i wanted to use the same schematics.
    however, as my EPIA TC-10000 doesn't come with a gameport, i need a USB solution
    kao

    using this it might be possible to regain the function of the steering wheel controls on certain cars. Have you tried the radio shack verion?

    I have used the radioshack unit many times to connect my ThrustMaster Wheel And Pedals Set to my laptop - works great.

    BZ, he's talking about a REAL steering wheel. Not some game controller.

    If you really want a good game controller, I'll go with ACT-LABS.

    Although I haven't touch the controller for ages. It's perfect for race simulation. Why? Cause this is what I got.

    Force Feedback Wheel
    8 Speed Shifter.... Yes.. 8 Speed Shifter.
    Pedals with Clutch. Yes... A Clutch pedal.

    Although, there's not much games on the PC I can use it with. Cause there's not that many good racing games I'm interested in. And I'm not a Nascar fan.

    Edit: damn, just went back to their website...looks like they have discontinue the controllers. Wonder if it worth any money on ebay? hmmmm...
