Default New problem: computer isnt recognizing cameras..

Okay I posted yesterday about a problem i was having where my computer refused to recognize that cameras were plugged in through firewire. Well as it turns out, it refuses to acknowledge these cameras on USB as well. Which got me to thinking.. I was for a time running a less than legal copy of Sony's video editing software, and I believe it may have somehow figured out it was illegal and messed with my registry. All of the cameras that my computer refuses to recognize are Sony products. I have a digital camera that isnt a sony and the computer will recognize it. It just won't recognize any of the sony cameras. Is this possible? If so, how would i fix the problem?

nope =| normally windows will make its little recognition noise, but right now, nothing. However, I just plugged in a JVC camera, and it still got nothing. So maybe this is beyond the scope of Sony stuff, who knows. In other news, I plugged in a different Sony camera through USB and it recognized it as an Audio device (??) Still no video comin through. lemme know if you figure anything out.

thanks for the help!
