    Bluetooth headsets not being found


    I have two headsets that I've used in the past with ps3, 3 win7 laptops and my iphone with no issues and are still working fine but win8 cant discover them however its finding my ps3, xbox and a cellphone

    Connecting the headsets to the computer with usb shows the devices names but no drivers install
