re-plug my Speedking Joystick, no prob all is working...

re-test : psx-adapter.. re white smoke... STOP.. and i don't know why i can't use it in my A500+
Are you saying it works ok in the A1200 but causes smoke in the 500+ ? If you have an Ohm meter measure resistance across pins 7 and 8 of the adapter and see if you have a short, also measure pin 7 to the steel casing to see if there is a short there.
