ps2 controller for wii
I have a Ps2 to USB converter and I am wondering if at all possible can I get my PS2 controllers to work using the converter I already have?
I am open to try just about anything as long as I am capable of doing the task. So any help would be loved.
I have tried using it in the back of the console without any luck. I tried to use the controller in the button mappings of the games and so far all the games I have do not allow you to assign your own configurations. So I have no luck at all thus far.

Reason: Information update
Maybe there's an adapter so you can plug it in to the end of the Wiimote. But how you going to swing the wiimote around with a PS2 controller in you hand? What you're looking for is the classic controller.

You could buy an additional converter which will may allow you to play Virtual Console, Gamecube games and a few Wii titles. NGC to PS2 converters exist but you can pick up a compatible GameCube controller for about the same price.

Thank you for your replies.
The classic controller I have and 2 of them at that. It's not the use I was intending for the piece.
I was attempting to use the Ps2 original Guitar Hero controller on the Wii. My problem is that I am not half as good with a different controller even one that is the same make and model.
But alas I cannot figure it out nor has anyone I know figured it out.
Tealc99 Might you know where I may purchase on-line or off-line one of the converters which you mentioned?
And if at all possible does anyone have any idea or a program in which I can use to get this to work?
(this could either be really smart or utterly moronic on my part for asking this because I do not know much on this program) But with the loaders that run would it be possible to make a script to force the Wii to recognize the controller?
Thanks for the time and efforts, and please excuse my stupidity at times.
Also I think I may have posted this into the wrong section if so I do apologize as I am not familiar with asking questions Via this forum. If I did indeed post wrongly please by all means would a mod or administrator move it to the proper section? Thank you and again sorry for my ignorance.

I just found some by googling, 'ps2 to Wii' or 'psx to wii' Not cheap though.
The Wii seems to be very versatile in what it can do, it's probably possible but it would require someone with an in depth knowledge of the hardware and an ability to code the software for this, coupled with an actual desire to achieve it. I find it unlikely that you'll get lucky on this one.
Thank you greatly for the time you have took to answer my question. I guess I shall give up on this. Sorry I was a pain.
Its two rivals companys.....
