I WANT TO USE MY CH PRODUCTS FLIGHT YOKE AND RUDDER PEDDELS (WITH DB-15 PLUGS) BUT THE MOBO HAS USB & SERIAL CONNECTORS. I HAVE A USB TO DB-15 ADAPTER CABLE BUT IT DOS'NT WANT TO WORK WITH THE YOKE/PEDDELS, HOWEVER IT WORKS WITH A MICROSOFT SINDWINDER PRECISION PRO JOYSTICK...
WHAT CAN I DO TO GET THE ANTIQUE YOKE/PEDDELS TO WORK?????

Most adapters are made to work with a specific joystick/gamepad. Simple cable adapters work with sticks that are designed to work on both, older sticks aren't.
