Is your controller becoming unplugged sometimes, or something? I use Motioninjoy too and I have never had problems like this, although my USB connection sometimes comes loose and it disconnects. I jsut ALT+TAB out of the game and hit Enable again on the DS3/Motioninjoy.

Obviously if you can play you have the proper 360 emulation so it has to be something with your connection that is doing it, or something running on your PC that is interfering. IF your PC is crashing are you running any programs in the background you don't need? Like a bunch of messaging servies, Skype, videos, etc?

Yea i was kinda tinking out with the idea that it's usb and i think that's what it is. I just played a little and didn't have any problems intill like idk 30 minutes in and it disconected but i just hit enable and it was good to go. I dont use any thing in the background just steam. thanks for the response.

I use a PS3 controller for player 2 when my nephew visits and we want to play some co-op (I use a 360 controller for solo play). I once had the MotionInJoy driver cause my computer to bluescreen because the USB port I had a PS3 controller plugged into was a bit flakey and the controller was basically rapidly plugged and unplugged due to the connection getting wiggled around, and that was fixed by simply plugging the controller up to another port.

Other than that, I've had no problems with MotionInJoy and Spelunky.
