You will be hard pressed finding a driver for your phone

You will probably need to find the software to provide more broad functionality. Similar to iPhones we have iTunes that bundle the software

That might get you started, otherwise look in the settings and see if under storage you can modify the behaviour to mass storage. This is a generic interface with a device driver like a sub stick built into every copy of Windows.

When you connect the phone to your win 8.1 computer, do you see an unknown device in Device Manager?

Post back the hardware ID of the unknown device, i.e. the VID value which provides the vendor ID and the PID value which provides the Product ID of the device.

Did you install PC suite? As I wrote in my previous comment. The required support software for your phone will be bundled with the PC software

If there aren't drivers available that is your best bet aside from changing the settings of the USB port in your phone to mass storage
