    Hi, last 2 days ive been trying to make my ps3 controller work with my laptop so i can play emulators such as SNES and N64.
    Ive followed countless processes on the internet and have spent many hours into this, however, even though i follow the step by step process exactly my controller just acts like it is not plugged in, in the configuration of the emulator to set the controls it just doesn't work.
    I know it is possible to work as i have seen many videos.

    Here is what i am using (if it is important at all)
    Dualshock 3 Sixaxis PS3 controller
    Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.

    If someone with experience with this could help me get this to work then i would be extremely greatful seeing as this is basically my last hope.
    Thanks in advance

    don't ps3 controllers use bluetooth? does ur pc have bluetooth or do u have a bluetooth dongle? that's probably the problem if not.
