    Well, I use a RadioShack-branded USB<->PSX adapter and it works well, as long as you only use a controller or wheel. Dance-mats aren't compatible with it. There are some better brands out there (Lik-sang.com) which work like a dream with any PSX/PS2 compatible controller.

    Yes, any RadioShack. It should claim to be HID-compliant. The good side of the RS brand adapter is if you use a DualShock, you can map out the joystick and then use the analog button on the controller to use the D-Pad or Left Joystick as the joystick control. Quite useful in a couple situations.
