    When I connect PS3 Controllers to a USB Port windows 8.1 won't charge them.
    If I reboot and start with windows 8/7/XP the controllers Charge normally.

    Is it possible that 8.1 blocks PS3 Sony Controllers, is there any workaround?

    I use my Dualshock 3 controller via the Motioninjoy drivers and BetterDS3 in 8.1 with no problems charging and connecting to my bluetooth adapter.
