    N00b question, but I'm having trouble getting a DualShock 3 to link to a PS3.

    Just upgraded to a slim, and thought while I've got a few controllers I'll try and get the Motorstorm trophy for playing a 4 player split screen race. So the first controller connected ok, the DFGT is seen as no. 3 and an old Sixaxis connected fine as no. 3 - but the DS3 is used on my old phat PS3 just dosn't want to connect.

    Any suggestions?

    Presumably you're connecting it up with the cable for it's initial pairing? If it's still failing, try resetting the controller by pressing the reset button on the back of the controller. You'll need a paper clip or something similar to fit into the small hole. Do this with the controller cabled to the PS3 and it should do the trick..
