the question is, does your operating system recognize these joysticks? Check in your windows control panel (devices), if they are recognized and work.
X-Plane does not care about the type or manufacture of your joystick, it´s just about wether a valid "axis" signal is provided by the operating system.
If all else fails, get X-Plane 10, it´s on sale right now and soooo much better than X-Plane 9.
Good luck, Jan
