you'll have to buy a game port to usb converter, or a creative labs sound card with a game port. you are more likely to find the sound card. creative labs sound cards are more likely to be compatible with vista.
That game controller would hook up to an older Creative Sound Blaster Sound card that has a yellow 15 pin female connector on it. See if you have a yellow 15 pin female connector on the back of the computer.
If not then you'll need an adaptor to convert it over to USB that looks like this, click on my link or paste it into your browser and you will see the picture of it:
Just get yourself a new soundcard with a gameport on board. Disable your MoBO soundcard if you have one and instal the new one. Creative is probably the safest option. Update the drivers and off you go. Don't forget to add the joystick, the drivers are supplied in XP.
A Gameport to USB adaptor will not work with Suncom F-15 with or without the SFS Throttle. You have to obtain and install a PCI sound card that has a DB15 gameport. Creative AudigyLS cards work great, when these instructions are followed:
Found a solution! Came here to post it, since I could not find the solution ANYWHERE on the internet...
an Xbox 360 controller or any other Xbox 360 peripheral with 95% of USB
sound cards or headsets will produce HORRIBLE sound input and output. It
sounds like a robot has swallowed and spat back out the waveforms. Even
if the 360 peripheral is removed any USB audio devices plugged in after
the fact will still sound corrupted until a fresh reboot without the
360 peripheral plugged in.
I believe that the problem is somehow linked to the "generic root hub" driver, which hasn't been updated since 2001, thanks M$.
The solution (pick one of 3):
As long as the 360 peripheral is on it's own internal virtual root
hub it will not interfere with other devices. You can force it to use
another root hub by doing ONE of the following: 1) Fill up your usb
ports with other devices till it shifts to using a secondary root hub,
then plug in the 360 peripheral. This could take up to 10 USB things,
depending on your motherboard and the maximum devices on each root hub. 2) Use an extra internal PCI-USB card for the 360 peripheral. 3) Use an extra external USB hub for the 360 peripheral.
NOTE: A reboot is usually required to clear up the driver's confusion.
The Problem is C-media doesn't have proper driver support. It seems to be the on board sound card. The only real fix is to get a different sound card. Hopefully c-media will eventuall address the problem in a new driver.
