Most computer stores will sell a little doo dad that has a 15 plug on one end and a usb plug on the other. Or at least I think they would. I'm pretty sure I had something like that once. It was for a mouse. Hadda run software to make it work with the usb, but it worked okay. If nothing else, try Saitek's website; maybe they'll be able to help.

Unlike I think I just did.
