The backwards compatible PS3s don't recognize cheat devices. The discs are coded differently than the games. And, for the record, they also don't recognize every PSOne or PS2 game. There are compatibility lists that will show you what games the system will even play.

well from what i read 60gb bc are fully ps2 compatable cuz when i had the 60 all cheats devices for ps1 and ps2 worked,but 80gb are somewhat different they dont work they took out some stuff but i think the 80gb will last alot longer than 60

Personally, I would not recommend using PS2 cheat devices on 1st generation PS3s (ones with the backwards compatibility technology). The reason -- if you insert and use it on a 1st gen. PS3 system, the system will eventually crash and totally screw it up big time, forcing you to most likely get a whole new PS3 altogether. This advice is from my personal experience from using a PS2 Codebreaker to using both normal and active cheat codes. I don't know if it happened to anyone else.

Anyway, that's just me; trying to pass on some helpful, suggestive advice. :)

because
20/60gb ps3 has real ps2 cpu inside.
later ps3 models removes ps2 cpu.
80gb ps3 model uses ps2 emulator and cheat device are blacklisted
