You need to download and run the libusb driver.

lilusb driver never worked for me.

I had the most successful GameSaike driver.

I found a different driver, GameSaike, and it works!

Download Here.

Install > Open program > Click Load Driver



After it is installed, check and see if it works by...

Start > Control Panel > Game Controllers > Click your device > Test tab > now press buttons on your controller.



Though, I am not able to move around during my desktop, on games such as DiRT, I can the config my keys to controller and use it in the game.

Never worked for you huh? You have to run the ps3sixaxis_en.exe everytime you want to use it. I use it all of the time.

Just buy a USB to PS2(Playstation) converter, its around 8 dollars at radio shack. Thats what i did and it was plug and play on XP. It worked great, even my Guitar Hero 1 controller worked so i could play frets on fire.
