I thought I'd take down the PS2 controller and hook up the PS3 one. I want it running on bluetooth though.
I'm clicking the pair now button, and it says its paired... but nothing happens. I disconnect the USB and it just stops reading the controller.

Could somebody help me out?

Ugh, I tried getting this to work every way to Sunday and failed. I have onboard bluetooth and every time I would install the driver they suggest, it would completely hose everything, including my USB controller and bring down my mouse and keyboard. Doh!

I gave up. I realize this doesn't help you at all, but perhaps you will find comfort in knowing someone else can't get it to work either. =D

bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON

Its not an answer to your question but these two commands turn off enforcement of digitally signed drivers so that you don't need to disable it every reboot. Edit: when your using an OS that requires it.

edit: i have gotten it to work but its just a bunch of trial and error. would take days to type everything out.... the instructions are a real good guidline.

Added tip, if you goto game controllers and it says PLAYSTATION 3© REMOTE or simialr then the motion in joy drivers are not installed and it will not work.

I'm currently connecting my ps3 controller via bluetooth to my system using motioninjoy (latest version).

If you have a built-in bluetooth connector:
1. Connect your ps3 controller via USB (note: you'll have to do these steps everytime you restart your computer to make the connection)
2. Run the motioninjoy program
3. Click on the Bluetooth Pair tab, on the top part of the page, if you see your bluetooth adapter's information, then manually enter the MAC address of the adapter (first field) into the text box in the middle of the page and click Pair Now.
4. Unplug the usb cable from your controller. Now the light on your controller will blink for a bit then it'll become solid. That means you're connected and ready to go.

If you don't see your adapter's information on this page, then you need to take this extra steps:
1. On the Bluetooth Pair page, click on DEVICE MANAGER, if the tool page just disappeared, open it up again, and click on device manager one more time, then it'll take you to the load driver screen.
2. Click on Load Driver, once the driver has been loaded, you should be able to see your adapter's information, if not, repeat this two steps until you see the info. (and make sure your bluetooth is turned on)


If you have a bluetooth usb dongle, then follow these steps:
1. Plug in the dongle and install the driver for it. Some dongle can support more than one bluetooth device, but if you want to use your ps3 controller, you need to unplug ALL the other bluetooth devices otherwise it won't work.
2. Plug in the ps3 controller via usb cable and run the motioninjoy tool.
3. Click on the Bluetooth Pair tab, on the top part of the page, if you see your bluetooth adapter's information, then manually enter the MAC address of the adapter (first field) into the text box in the middle of the page and click Pair Now.
4. Unplug the usb cable from your controller. Now the light on your controller will blink for a bit then it'll become solid. That means you're connected and ready to go.
