I have been trying for a couple of years now.. The companies tech support had no solution either.As far as I know....you CAN"T. The BlackHawk is a Digital device and the USB Adapters are for Analog Gamepads and joysticks. I have tried it and it does not work.
Shortly after this joystick (My favorite of all times) came out everyone switched over to USB interface instead of using the midi/game port.
Either buy a Soundcard with a midi port or you will have to move on to another joystick. I have yet seen a pci card with just a gameport on it.. Good luck

Hi,
I too have this exact same joystick so when I tried to plug it into my new pc (that I built 2 yrs ago as of Feb.14,11) I had to use a: 15-pin to USB adapter with chord.
I got it from eBay.ca in the $5-$10 range shipped to me from Chnia.

It's called the: Super Joy Box 7 USB Gameport Adatper

They are still available from eBay.ca & eBay.com as of Dec.06,10 (the time of writing this posting).

For me it wokrs, but only 1/2 - as in:
- the fire button + 3 other buttons - work fine
- the HAT switch (4-way) - refuses to work
- the full range of the joysticks motions are reduced (on the right side)

Because of these limitations I had to learn to used the keyboard buttons to fly planes & choppers in the pc game - GTA:SA.

Gamepad to usb adapters?


The adapter is out there. I happened upon one a while back, and got a nice joystick to work with it (win2k).

I can't seem to get my gamepad pro grip to work though. I think I may have bad controllers.
