Before starting, you are going to want the following items.
A PS3 Controller. (DualShock or SixAxis)
A USB Mini B cable. (A PS3 Controller charge cable)
A Windows 32 Bit Vista, XP, or Server 2003 Computer.
Total Game Control (The same program used in my other instructable)
It is a .rar file, and if you don't have WinRAR get it here. (I will post a ZIP folder if someone really needs it)
Step 1: Installing the drivers
Extract the files to a place that is easily available (You have to extract twice). (Picture 1)
Plug your PS3 Controller into the computer via USB. (Picture 2)
The computer should recognize that the controller is there (make a noise) and the controller should be flashing red.
Go into control panel and click Device Manager or type it in on the Windows Start menu. (Picture 3)
Open up Human Interface Devices and find USB Human Interface Device.
Right click it and click Update Driver Software...
Select "Browse my computer for driver software: Locate and install software manually" (Picture 4)
Then click Let me Pick From a list of device drivers on my computer and then click "Have Disc...". Find the location of the ds3drv folder and click dualshock3.inf . (Picture 4)
Click okay, next, and install this driver software anyway.
Close all of the screens, and now device manager should say you have a PS3 controller installed under human interface devices.
If you have a DualShock controller, locate the place where you put the drivers and find the ForceFeedbackDriver folder. Inside it right click DUALSHOCK3FF.inf and install it. (Picture 5)
Thats about it for the controller to work on your computer.
