Amiga 9-pin female D-sub connector usb to PC?


I'm looking to connect joysticks to my PC, specifically master system and megadrive pads that I used to use on my amiga (as they use the same port). Is there a way that isn't too techincal to connect things that fit the old Amiga mouse/joystick ports to a PC?

Megadrive and SMS pads can be used on the Amiga through an Amiga 4-Players adaptor. You can find how to make one here. With the 4-players adaptor tho, you won't get all 3 Megadrive buttons to operate, just the two and only if you follow these instructions. You will need the PPJoy drivers. Here's a list of all supported interfaces.

There's a couple of different atari -> usb adapters available. There's been discussion about them here too, you can use the search function of the forum to find them.
