Hmm....that's wierd, but just to let you know that my case I can. Just use it as any normal lens, can AF (contrast detection method/slow) in Live View, and record. You tried cleaning the contacts? Just a long shot...

Live view has nothing to do with the lens.

To think that you need to have special lenses to live view shows that you still have a loooong way to go in even understanding how your camera works.

As other members have stated, you may have dirty contacts, thus the camera is thinking no lens is correctly attached.
