Did this video help you?

Matt Schiavo: Yeah, doesn't work. My Mac can't even find the PS3 controller.

Jairo Iriarte Valencia: works perfectly, but I couldn't use my controller again in my PS3!!! PLEASE HELP!! what do I have to do for my controller works back with my PS3 ???

Chloe Dyer: This makes it look so easy, I follow it word for word but it won't ask me for a password. After I disconnect the controller my mac says its connected but my controller doesn't turn on for around 5 minutes and then it just doesn't work. Whats going wrong?

Arran Wass-Little: It continues to ask for a passcode? Why?

BlueLightLily: Ugh so frustrated. Its like my controller can EASILY find the computer and it only blinks twice before saying "Player 1" like it normally does on the PS3 but my computer NEVER sees it and I can't figure it out, tutorials like this make it look easy and thats why it is so frustrating!

phillipwilby: Thanks it works

neonZXk .: worked thnx

varAndre: I only tested it on >= os x Lion

G14cl: could you give me a list of games that could work?

Emil Magnussen: my controller connects automatically without the password..

varAndre: I don't know because i can't try all the games, but if that games are compatible with controllers your PS3 controller should work

Ahmed: nice easy and simple tutorial great job , but one thing THE MUSIC IS freakING ANNOYING !!

varAndre: Try to work with options in game, it is only a game issue

varAndre: Non saprei.. io ho provato con il controller Sony e accade ciò che puoi vedere nel video. Non saprei come aiutarti.

Alex Lambrou: connects but buttons are messed up how can i fix this?

David Abraham Garcia Lozada: AWESOME!!

varAndre: If the controller is paired properly when you'll play a game that is designed to work with controllers it will work

Pastor Tom Friedrichs: Didn't work.

Tushar Goyal: Can i use it to play call of duty 4, asphalt 6 and real racing 2 please help

Chad Adams: The pairing code windows shows up but it refuses to pair, any suggestions?

Martin Aleph: Hi im suscribed to your channel, can you give me the app joystick mapper. Thanks

varAndre: Thanks for feedback

Ben Roobottom: Liked the tutorial but found the music very distracting from it.

nunmrat: any chance you ended up finding a solution for this, I'm facing the same dilemma, Thx

EJxEvolution: This music just killed many brain cells...

GmLantis: niente da fare-, non me lo riconosce. uso OsX 10.8 Mountain Lion

Divide By Pillow: Just turn bluetooth off, and it should stop blinking, if thats what you mean..

guidope: Hi varAndre, I have my controller connected on OS X 10.9 but somehow it still doesn't work. I'm trying the PCSX-R emulator but but the input doesn't come through. Do you have any ideas?

varAndre: Hi and thanks for whatching. Yes the LED are supposed to keep flashing, i don't know how to stop them, but if the controller works fine don't care about them. ;)

varAndre: It must keep flashing..

akanobouken: Thanks for the video! I have a question and I apologize if you already covered this, but are the LED lights on my PS3 supposed to keep flashing? The controller works fine and I have no problems configuring it, but all 4 LED lights keep flashing rapidly. Is there any way to get them to stop?

varAndre: If the game has been made to work with a controller your controller will work without any additional step.. But if the controller is properly paired and so on but it still doesn't work with the game, i think that the problem comes from the game.. imho

Mikeyy Salinas: lol was jammin the whole time

deadballo: Are there drivers for USB wired mode?

againsturlaw: My PS3 is connected but the lights keep flashing and it doesn't work :O

ELiTExSPEED: it says connected but my mouse is not moving

HRRLutherie: Cheers, great tutorial.

Ryan Reilly: I can't get it paired so I can't use it

feminiedisaster: Actually it seems it just has to be connected. Mine's not paired and it works. Mountain Lion here btw.

BeyondGaming: it tells me to type a code in all numbers and send it wtf

Jen Gall: Step 0: Use a paperclip to press the tiny reset button inside the hole on the back between the top-middle screw and the left side of the controller molding. Especially important if it's been paired with a real PS3.

Jose Martinez: I was going for the dolphin nintendo emulator which has the whole calibration key mapping deal. Ima try my wired xbox 360 controller next.

Tushar Goyal: i have found a way from which any game could work. there is no need for that game to be compatible with ps3 remote controller. It just works but you have to assign the controller to certain keys.

Soulfighrer: Dub step Mario!!!!!!!!!

varAndre: Yes, they exists. Google them ;)

Ian Waldrop: The method above is pretty convoluted. Simply activate bluetooth and discovery then plug in your DS3. It should appear in the Bluetooth window. Click the drop-down button with the gear on it and mark the device as favorite. Unplug your DS3. Press the home button and enter 0000 as the pairing code. Now it works forever.

Adam Gonzalez: Thank you!

Jamie Hunt: What os are you running? Doesn't work in Mountain Lion.

kangchow chan: cool, it works on my mac running 10.8.2 thank you so much

Rox: Thanks It worked!
