X-Plane only recognizes USB flight controls, but it sounds like you have an adapter. Can you confirm if the joystick or pedals are recognized by your computer? Maybe the OS is too new.

You could also try searching online for a driver for either the hardware or the adapter. Sometimes those are necessary for the computer to recognize devices.
