My comp blue-screened trying to update the MotionInJoy driver to use Better DS3.

I'm not worried about any data being lost or anything like that. I've had a few before on other computers and while they've been jarring, they've always been because of a specific issue I could replicate - in other words, all bark and no bite, though I'm sure I'm not using that completely correctly.

I'm using a solid state drive to boot Windows and a standard hard drive to store everything else, so I'm trying to keep it free of clutter. I found a file called MEMORY.DMP in C:\Windows, and I was wondering if it's safe to delete it outright to save my SSD a gig of space. Considering it was last modified at 7:59 PM, and it's currently 8:09 PM as I type this, I'm certain it's the file my computer dumped from memory.

tl;dr version: Is it safe to delete the MEMORY.DMP file in C:\Windows after a BSOD? Trying to save space on my SSD.

Only time my PC has ever blue screened is when running Motionjoy. I second what sonic_man said. Use a wrapper and never have to run another program to get your DS3 working again. Your DS3 will act exactly like a 360 controller, no need to run any programs before or after plugging it in.

I found that months, but I could never get it working. Followed the directions to a t, but no luck. I don't have a bluetooth dongle for my desktop, and I couldn't figure out how to work it through USB.

I am almost certain motionjoy ruined one of my ps3 controllers, I don't think anyone should use it.
