With Sony's 3.5 Firmware upgrade they blocked all third party hardware.Unless it is an actual Sony or Sony licensed product it will no longer work.According to the Sony website only Datel and Rocketfish hardware is currently licensed by Sony.

I cant get my wireless rockcandy controller to work on my ps3


Try plugging it into another computer USB to see if it recognizes a device. If not, its dead. If yes you may want to see if there is a software update for your PS3.

My gigaware controller is not connecting, what do i do?


If your PS3 version is 3.5 or higher, it will not work. I just recently replied to a similar post about this problem. If you have upgraded to version 3.5 or higher, it overwrites third-party firmware that gigaware controllers use. Making the controller useless. I prefer to get controllers that are actually made by Sony themselves, not ones from gigaware etc.

Wireless gigaware controller wont connect to ps3


I'm guessing you haven't paired the controller to the system yet. If you look under section 04 in the little black book that came with the PS3 it tells you how to pair them so every time you turn the PS3 on it will pick up the signal of the sixaxis assigned to that slot. I had some of the same problems you did until I read up on it. If you have already done this I apologize but that's all I can think of.
hope this helps.

My gigaware controller is not connecting to my ps3


If you have updated your PS3 to version 3.50, it overwrites a third-party firmware the gigaware controller uses. Therefor, making it impossible to connect. This just happened to me not long ago, very dissapointed in it. There is no way to roll-back your PS3 version, unless you can get Sony to give you a roll-back code.

Ps3 controls not connecting


If they work wired and not wirelessly then you might have a problem with your wireless access module. Can you access the internet through your PS3?
