    Same here - all of the advice from PS3 states that you have to pair it using the USB cable - but there's no socket on the controller. Bigben information states that you don't need the cable so I'm a bit scuppered!!

Bigben controller and ps3
i had this problem with bigben mega pack bought with ps3 nov08
the problem is caused i find that the sony wireless controller supplied
has been already allocated as number 1 controller, this has to be changed while the bigben matches
the FIX:
boot the machine with sony controller and go into
settings\accessory settings\reassign controllers\ and re-assign the sony as number 3
(use left stick to move numbers up/down)
plug in the bigben receiver unit into a usb slot and then switch on the bigben
now the receiver light should now stop flashing and the bigben now has a single light agains number 1
go again into re-assign controllers and change the bigben to number 2
then re-assign the sony controller from number 3 to number 1
close down system
re-boot using the sony PS button (the bigben PS button does not boot PS3)
the sony should now be indicating that it is again number 1
the bigben receiver unit should have a steady red light but
the bigben will have all the lights flashing - click the PS button and they will stop
it now should only showing one light next to number 2, so is assigned as number 2 conroller
thats it
Note: I wanted to use 2 controllers for the game 'littlebigplanet'
Now if the two controllers are on, the game asks to assign a profile for the
other controller when it opens, so then you choose another user (that u have created)
Then another rag doll drops into the pod that is controlled only by the bigben (user2)

I have a big ben interactive battery controller for the ps3 and i can't sync it with another ps3

Hi, i had this problem also. you have to plug in the usb receiver (looks like a usb storage that you would use for pc) into the front of pc, make sure you have batteries in controller. Turn it on and press home, red light will flash on usb receiver until controller is paired with it.
Hope this helps...

Take care

Cant getmy big ben remote controlto work with my playstation. how do you connect them?

Inside the user manual for the big ben should be an area describing how to put the remote into pairing mode. Do this first. Then on the PS3 under settings select accessory settings. Then select manage bluetooth. Then select register new device this will scan for bluetooth and should pick up the remote. then all you have to do is select use this device.

How do i connect a Big Ben Interactive PS3 controller to a PS3? It doesn't have an imput for the mini usb!!

I don't know exactly what is wrong because i don't own one. Try looking for a sync button ether on the controller or in the options section of your PS. I also thing that it is supposed to come with a input.

Wireless controller problem

Its not a memory stick! its a radio reciever that you need with the controller.

The remote bundled along has a seperate one.

Just make sure the switch on the dongle is set to PS and not PC (as can be used on a pc aswell)
