PS3 Controller on my PC?

Can I use my ps3 controller to play games on my pc? The plug and play acknowledges it when I plug it in as a ps3 controller, but when I go to the callibration menu nothing happens. Do I need a patch or something?

Hey I was wondering that too, so I did a little searching and came across this.

However, I haven't tried it yet. Haven't had the time but if you want to give it a shot and see how it goes let me know if it works.

I just tried it. The PC recognizes it, but it's not working. I even turned the controller off (from the PS3), but I think it's the Blue-tooth nature of the device. It probably would need drivers of some sort.

I have read in numerous places that a homebrew filter driver (the one oz1421 posted) will allow the PS3 controller to be used with the PC. However, I am always hesitant on using any homebrew software...
