There must be errors in its USB coding chip that don't get it reconised as a legal DS3 controller for a long time.

 

(PS3 blocks cloned Sony DS3 chip sets.)

Sony have blocked most third party controllers from working. This means you are restricted to only using the first party ones.

The DS3's turn off after a certain time too, there's a setting to alter it on the PS3. That's all I can help you with I'm afraid.

Well if they had blockled yours it wouldn't work at all would it?

 

How long is long when it turns on? It just sounds like its taking a bit longer to register then an official one. It cant be that bad can it?

Sony only stopped Cloned Chips in controllers from working.

Other third party controllers work fine. As they paid for licensed Chips.

The PS3 knows whats licensed and what is not AKA logitech and Gioteck controllers for example.
