Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 does not recognise the Logitech Driving Force Pro Wheel


Last Friday I bought GT5 Prologue along with Logitech Driving Force Pro Wheel and I connected the Logitech through one of the USB ports of my PS3. However, to my surprise the PS3 did not recognise the wheel. I changed the USB ports, but it did not help. I put the PS3 on Stand-by mode and turned its power from its back switch, turned on while the wheel is still connected through of the USB ports of the PS3, but this did not help either.

I then took my Logitech Driving Force Pro along with GT5 Prologue game to my nephew and there when he connected the whell through his PS3's USB port, it immediately started working and he was able to control the XMB menu of PS3 through the buttons on the Logitech wheel and then it worked perfectly in the game as well.

What could be my problem? Any suggestions please.

Kind regards,

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.

Only one controller can work at a time

You will need to pair the second controller. To do this power on your ps3 as normal with the controller that works, then plug in your second controller via usb and press the "PS" button. The red LED's should flash and then the second led should stay on.

You should be able to play normally.
