    Happy New Year!

    Anyway, I have a Sony PS3 gamepad that I am attempting to use on my PC but the PC doesn't even recognise that it is plugged into the USB connection (front and back). In Device Manager, there is nothing under sound, video and game controllers. Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers nothing changes/appears when I plug or unplug the pad. I know the USB connections on the PC are working as I have tried other devices on them and they are all fine. I also know the pad itself is functioning correctly. Where do I start to investigate this problem?

    Many Thanks,
