Possible you need to reset the PS3 . Also check if the CD is reading, is compatible and not a pirated version.
Finally check if the parental control is active.

Can't pair it with controller. I bought a white ps3 controller from hong kong. it will turn the system on but thats it, no buttons work. At first I thought it was because the controller was from overseas,...

if the ps3 reads ps2 games then it's a 60 gig,and has 4 usb ports rather than 2...if the controller works on a buddies machine and the machine freezes,it probly needs a service.

Ps3 control

there are several ps2 to usb adapters out there, many made expressly for connecting the dual shock 2 to the ps3. they cost anywhere from around $5 to $20. i have one myself and it works very well. has several listed - or you can search anywhere for 'ps2 to usb' or 'ps2 to ps3' and you should find something that will work - although as always read the reviews on the product first.

PS3 Guitar Hero

Keep in mind that backwards compatibility is not 100% and no that controller will not work with the PS3...

Sure the other games work just fine but you are using a ps3 controller to play them correct??

Yes it is different. The same goes for trying to get a ps2 controller to work on a ps3, it's not gonna happen.

You need to get GH3 with the ps3 controller in order to rock out on the ps3....
