not sure. it came out of the sealed box. theres no flashing lights either.
I tried going into the settings and adding a new device, but theres no option for this that i can see. unless theres another way?

Do you have your first controller switched on too? if it is then hold down the PS button and select "Turn off the controller", and then assign your new controller with the USB cable
Because usually the 1st assigned controller has priority over controlling some things on the PS3

is it a dualshock 3? Where did you buy ti from?
