    Hi all....

    I need some help, if possible i would like to use a PS3 controller (Dreamgear: DreamGEARPS3 Shadow 6 Wireless Controller - Camo) on my PC, i have the USB cable that fits into this controller, but if i need to get the Bluetooth device i can, but i don't wanna get it before i know it will work for sure! I've tried a few things already, some application (cant think of the name it think it is DS3 or something).

    I am running WIndows 7 Ultimate, 64Bit with latest updates to date.

    This is my PC Specs:




    Would really appreciate your assistance with this....

    PS. Glad to be back!!!

    Apparently its possible to pair any PS3 controller like this:

    - Open Sixaxis Pair Tool
    - Connect new PS3 Controller
    - Enter Bluetooth Adapter MAC address and click UPDATE
    - Re-plugin PS3 Controller and start Motioninjoy and load driver (If Windows doesn't install driver automatically)
    - Remove usb cable

    Sixaxis Pair Too: Dancing Pixel Studios
    Motioninjoy - http://www.xinputer.com/download/MotioninJoy_071001_signed.zip

    I couldn't honestly tell you if it will work however, from what people say it appears to be possible and work best if you have a Bluetooth 2.0 dongle.
