Hey guys, i have a TAC converter and it’s also happening to me. I contacted Sony and this is how it went:
Me: Customer - 04/02/2009 09:27 AM
I just upgraded to Firmware 2.7 and now my PS3 freezes every time I plug in my ps2 Arcade stick, which is plugged in through a TAC Universal System Ps2 to Ps3 converter (P/N GTR-PS3-ADPT).
Can you guys please release a patch to fix this soon. I want to get back on to play Street Fighter: IV. This is very frustrating.

Sony: Hello Tony,
Thank you for writing us about a controller adapter.
We do not support these adapters. PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system controllers were not designed to play on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
Me: It worked fine before the new updated firmware! This adapter was made so that ps2 guitars from rock band and guitar hero can work on the ps3. Why would you guys create such a firmware that disables ps2 accessories? That makes absolutely no sense. So what am I suppose to do now? Throw away all my ps2 guitars and arcade sticks? That is literally hundreds of dollars down that drain because of some firmware. I am not only speaking about myself. I am also speaking on behalf of other outraged ps3 owners.
Please create a patch soon.
