    I just got an used PS3 with Cobra ODE and I've been encountering some problems with the controller. Whenever I turn my console on using the PS Button on it, after the PS3 is on, my controller keeps the four lights flashing and does not connect to the console, no matter how much I press the PS Button again.

    If this happens, I have to connect the controller to the USB so it can synch to the console. Now, if I turn on the console, wait for the main-menu to come up and then press the PS Button, it connects, most of the times.

    Do anyone have any idea if it is my controller or my PS3 that is having problems?

    Press the reset button on the under side of your controller with a pin or something, and pair it up again with a USB cable.

    I've already tried synching with the PS3. It works, but if I turn off the console and try to turn it on again, my controller will have troubles finding the PS3.

    Have you tried pressing the reset button first?

    Yeah. I've done the following procedure now, actually
    Turned off my PS3, disconected him from power. Pressed the reset button on the controller. Turned it back on, and synched it as new. Still having the same problem.

    I had the same problem since I installed my Cobra ODE. Your HDD needs too much power. Use an y-cable to connect your hdd at the cobra pcb and the other at a front usb off the ps3. Then your controller will sync without problems.
