Thread: PS3 controller

  1. #1

    Default PS3 controller

    If I were to setup my PS3 controller to work with Nestopia, how should I go about it as I have it plugged in and the lights are blinking but it won't work but the laptop reads it

    Microsoft installed a driver for it but don't know which one it's installed, is there a folder that holds drivers installed on vista?

    unless I'm missing something m$ has no business installing divers to PlayStation peripherals. That is Either a hid compliant or you acquired a drive somewhere and didnt know it. Or, I'm missing something....

    Ok found your answer here.

    The PS3 controller does get recognized by Windows, but before the controller reacts on our request, the following driver should be installed. (Tested under Windows XP and Windows Vista).
    driver here. SixAxis on Windows.

    If that fails try this.. ( warning direct link to an exe ).
