hi.    I hve a computer game i would like to play.  I want to hook my ps3 remote via usb to my computer and use it for the game.   I have done this in the past with windows xp and even window 7 with great sucess.   Well, now i have a new laptop, a real good one, running window 8.1   and i would like to use my ps3 remote on my new pc.   BUT i cant get it to work for some reason?  Usually i use the motion joy program and then map out the button using xpadder.   But for some reason when i run everything and hook it up the remote, it will work for a split econd and then it will stop?     How can i use my ps3 remote on my laptop with window 8.1?  Is there something im missing?  Wasnt sure were ese to post this.  any help would be great.  thanks!

The most likely problem is that the laptop doesn't have the right hardware. The operating system doesn't matter, even though Windows 8.1 is more recent, laptop hardware is generally less sophisticated than desktop hardware. Your laptop most likely is not powerful enough to recognise the remote, which is why it isn't working. Even if your laptop is higher-end, it is quite possible it still does not possess the required hardware.
