I found a VERY old Gravis Gamepad Pro in the garage. I'm trying to modify it so it will either be wireless(USB) or wired USB. The controller is VERY old and has some kind of ten-pin connector thing(I'm new at this).
The inner workings of the controller are shown in this pic: ... Where would I find a ten-pin connector (to USB or for wireless USB).?

That sounds like an interesting idea. It would not be very easy though. It probably uses the game port interface. This has no relation to USB so you would have to do all of the conversion manually using a microcontroller (not simple)

Here is some game port info that might help:

Here is a link to a pdf about using a PIC to do gameport -> USB
