The Windows thing for detecting and calibrating controllers isn't seeing it either, with the controller itself also plugged into the computer or not. The response time is a bit slow.

So what happens when you try to pair the controller to the usb adapter? As long as you keep the dongle plugged in, the controller will not disconnect and won't need pairing again. Windows makes the sound when I plug the dongle in, but nothing happens after that. Then plug the dongle into other usb port. I ve had the controller for almost 2 years or so and have read that these controllers don t really last long. This works fine, right away. Bought another wireless Bluetooth controller on sale which is still holding up well, although I just can't get used to the feel of it. The lights don't dim, so that may be distracting.
Jul 13, 2012 This works: Turn ps3 on. Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock? Also works great no issues. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller. Five seconds should be enough. It turns off after about 3 minutes of inactivity to save the batteries.

If that doesn't work, look on the wireless usb dongle for the guitar hero guitar controller. Try changing the batteries in the guitar controller.

This Afterglow is just a cool dustcatcher that has green lights on it, I guess; I've never used it, but I've had it for a couple of years now. I've had issues with this for awhile myself.
