i'm wondering if anybody has run into a similar problem. i have novation usb midi keyboard that i use with an old version of reason. when i used to run this setup on my ibm thinkpad, the usb connection worked just fine to run the midi keyboard. but when i started to use this new sony vaio laptop, it would never recognize the midi keyboard thru the usb port. i always have to use a m-audio uno and go thru the midi ports. i would really like to just use the usb port... has anybody else run into this?
