Pro Pedal GamePort to USB

Recommended Posts

When I got a new computer a while ago, I got myself CH Pro Pedals with a USB connection to replace an older set of pedals that used a game port. A friend's young son has recently taken up simming and I let him have my older pedals. He doesn't have a game port on his machine, however, so he bought a Rockfire converter that is supposed to allow him to use a USB port. But it doesn't work. Any ideas?Bob

A real cheap way of doing it, about $10, would be to buy a much outdated sound card on Ebay that has a gameport on the board. Just use the gameport part of the board. To use the pedals you need a joystick in the same loop with them OR you can add a resistor to the pedals to make the gameport THINK a joy stick is present. I think the adapter from RadioShack is about $22 from the online store.BobThe CURRENT WEATHER at my home. (12.9 Miles ESE of KPIA)http://www.crh.noaa.gov/radar/images/DS.p3...klot/latest.gif

Hey Bob,It depends on two things... CH Products have been having some problems with Windows XP and functionality, if not, perhaps the consideration of an outdated sound card with a gameport or look for a motherboard with a gameport onboard.In the meantime, try the CH Products website for some updated product drivers.
