EDIT , libusb on vista can hurt system if it will work wrong way (e.g. all usb devices doesnt work), a way to fix it – boot safe mode and uninstall libusb., also sources at end of post
a lot of peoples have problems to get sixaxis working in vista64, i solved it for myself tonight.
before doing anything need to disable driver signature checking.
short instruction – download libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1.exe from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=78138&package_id=79216
open file properties, set compatible mode to winxp_sp2 for this .exe. (very important step)
now install libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1.exe then reboot.
after reboot u can check if this trick worked, in drivers list(driver properties or etc) for usb devices (e.g. usb hid) u will see libusb0.sys (or etc).
now connect your sixaxis to system via usb cable, run this application – http://rapidshare.de/files/40942846/sixaxis64.exe.html (it’s 32-bit app).
it will find sixaxis in list of usb devices and initialize it (if it shows usb devices list but no sixaxis – try another pc usb ports, if it doesnt list any usb devices – then filtr installation went wrong).
now press PS button and u can calibrate this sixaxis gamepad in window’s control panel.
this way got sixaxis to work in vista x64 sp1.
so steps is
1) downlaod libusb-win32-filter
2) run it with compatible mode – windows xp sp2
3) install it, reboot
4) attach sixaxis gamepad, run sixaxis64.exe, press PS button i gamepad
5) if all was ok, now gamepad should work with windows.
