    Go to your Device Manager and then to your Human Interface Devices section before plugging in your PS3 controller. Then plug in your PS3 controller and you will see "HID-compliant game controller" and "HID-compliant wireless radio controls" be updated to your Human Interface Devices section. Right click and disable "HID-compliant game controller" then unplug and replug in your PS3 controller and it should charge fine.

    Thanks a ton. This will help me so much. Now I can use my old PS3 controller with my Gear VR rather than having to buy one of the controllers made for it and spend and unnecessary $60. Wish there was a way to use my XBOX One Pro controller. But I'm perfectly happy with my PS3 controller

    Should be possible, I play Doom on my pc with an xbox one controller. Haven't tried it with a pro controller, however it shouldn't be any different. Google up "Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows" You can pick them up for about 30 canadian, or about 25 american
