    Yes, Please try another firewire, if that does not solve the problem then DV Port jack would be damaged, inspect its physical condition with magnifying glass in good light.

The pc doesnt seems to detect my cam like it needs a driver or something i plug the firewire and nothing happens


This can be caused by several things. One common problem is a faulty cable. If you have another Firewire/1394 cable, try that.

A second problem is using the wrong cable. I don't remember if the VX2000 takes still photos, but if it does, many Sony camcorders have a USB connection for transferring the still photos. However, the USB connection will NOT transfer video.

A third problem is drivers. This is usually only a problem on older Windows computers. By older, I mean Windows 98, Windows ME, and the first generation of Windows XP (the first generation is "service pack 1"). However, if you have Windows XP and have done updates, then you probably have the correct driver. If you haven't done updates, then you need to get the update for Firewire/1394.

Finally, if you haven't tried re-booting the computer, that very often is needed -- especially with older (more than five years old) -- computers. Even with modern computers, the computer will often get into a state where it won't recognize peripherals. I recommend shutting off the computer completely, disconnecting the camcorder, and then turning off the camcorder. Then, re-start the computer and after it has booted, turn on the camcorder and after it is on, connect the Firewire/1394 cable between the camcorder and the computer.

Hopefully the camcorder connector is OK. I have broken several Sony Firewire connectors, and it costs about $300 to have them repaired.

This is most likely a problem of bad electrolytic capacitors. New capacitors must be soldered in. Visit http://badcaps.net/ for more information. Before doing any of that though, check if it is still under warranty. Here is viewsonic's warranty information. http://www.viewsonic.com/support/warranty.htm
