its not a problem with the device, its a problem with windows itself. In fact, you don"t even need to have the device connected to reproduce these results. I know how you feel man updated from my ios 7.1.2 jailbreak to 8.1 because i wanted some apps that required ios 8.1 and i got screwed because i too have the same problem.
