maybe connection pin has been pushed in and is not touching the other side of the connector. has happened to me when I put a test meter connector together and then pulled it out and rejoined the two plugs, a pin had been pushed in for enough to not be seen but not connected and showed the 'unable to detect message. look for something out of the norm when test show ok, but it's not
The pinout is as follows when looking into the cable like this;

There isn;t a reason why you shouldn't charge using a laptop/pc, did a bit of resaearch and many people claim to be charging thier pads via a pc's usb, I tried it on mine and it didn't work, it recognised the PS3 pad and installed it as a game controller, which was pretty cool but it wouldn't charge, haven't tried it on my mac yet . If it doesn't work first time try a diff. usb port on your laptop pc, as sometimes its certain usb ports on your system that carry enough juice to power a device d:)
This could be the PS2 console. You need to try a different Dual Shock controller to determine if the problem is the controller itself or the ports on the Playstation. The normal problem here is a dirty connector on the Playstation. Clean the connector or you may need to check the Fuses inside the Playstation. This requires specialized skillls.
I have seen where Dogs have chewed the cable running from a controller, and caused the problem.
When you say hard, did you mean the controllers analog stick is very "stiff" or loose to the point that you can't move the characters onscreen or the characters move involuntarily. If this is your case then you may have to try another PS2 dualshock 2 analog controller in your PS2, If the problem doesn't happen with another controller, then you may consider buying a new PS2 dualshock 2 analog controller since most likely the controller is already defective.
Also try other games, see if the problem only happens with a particular game. If it does then you will have to check the settings of the game, and see if you can adjust the settings of the buttons or analog stick.
If the problem you're having is more with the "comfort" of the controller you're using then you should consider looking at 3rd party controllers for the PS2. One company that makes them is Logitech, they have a line controllers that work for the PS2 there are other companies so check out gaming sites to get reviews on them. But I would suggest though that if you're shopping for a controller because of this reason, you should try to test the controller out in a game shop first. So that you can get a feel of it before buying. If you like the controller and you're comfortable with it then tha's the time you buy it.
loading a different disc to see if the problem continues.
Try inserting the controller into either controller ports (1 and 2) to see if the problem continues.
Try a different controller and/or memory card to see if the problem continues.
certain games, there are on-screen "controller options" where you can
designate which character (or team) you want your controller to
control. Make sure that these options have been verified within the
Make sure there are no obstructions in the controller or memory card ports (i.e., lint, debris, etc.).
Make sure the controller cables are in good condition, free of cuts, frays, or other visible damage.
Make sure the controller and the memory card is plugged into their respective ports completely.
sure the analog button in the middle of the controller is pressed.
Toggle this button On/Off to see if either mode helps the controller
function properly. This can also help troubleshoot the vibration
function with the DUALSHOCK®2 analog controller.
