if this one: http://plugable.com/products/pl2303-db9/
then it has no relation to Amiga joysticks. It's USB-RS232 converter.
Not every DB9 is about Amiga joystick.

this one https://retro.7-bit.pl/?lang=en&go=proj ... e=rys_mkii is supposed to be a 2-way converter (depends on firmware). I've used it to plug USB joysticks to Amiga's DB9. But i didn't try opposite functionality.
