PS3 Controller wont sync with my Mac OSX 10.6.8
I just bought a new PS3 controller - I had been using my boyfriends originally. I had no problems getting his controller to sync with my mac. However, I have followed all the tutorials and steps that I previously had done and nothing. I plugged the controller into my mac and the 4 lights start to blink. Then, I hold down the home button for 3-5 seconds and unplug the cable. Then the lights turn off completely. Usually, this is the part where they are supposed to blink faster and then I can see it under my bluetooth on my computer, etc.
To note, I did sync it with the actual PS3 console and it worked great. I tried resetting and resyncing and nothing.
Please help! Thanks

Here is the thread edddeduck most likely was talking about since he posted the only reply in it, with a link to his vid.
I don't really have an answer for you, other than to make sure your ps3 is off... it's not an issue I've ever had.

I have the same Op Sys. on my Mac Mini 4.1.
The PS_3 Gamepad will work.
Make sure that you charge it first ! Plug USB cable into your Mac then into your PS-3 G_P , then , surf the web / e-mail / write a letter , what ever for a couple of hours.
Than , once the 4 flashing lights stop flashing ( on PS3 GP ) , press the PS Button on the GP.
Open Sys. Pref. / Select Bluetooth / ( you should see the PS3 listed ) / make it a favorite ( click on gear ).
Press PS Button on PS3 GP and hole while un-plugging.
The flashing lights should no go out ( off ) , it will show as NOT PAIRED , thats fine , it is paired.
Set up > show bluetooth icon in menu bar < click icon on menu bar and it should be listed as CONNECTED.
Now , every time you start your Mac , plug in the PS3 Cable to both Mac & GP , press PS button ( on GP ) , un-plug cable and you are good to go !
Best of luck , trick is it must be charged first !
I hope I have helped
