Unable to capture from my Canon hv30

Time:October 11
Advertisement
I just tried to capture some footage from my hv30, the first time I've tried, and it say's on the capture screen that the capture device is off line. I have the camera properly connected and its in the right setting, is there some setting in premiere that's i have wrong? I have another program that came with the camera, and it can't connect to the camera either, saying that its not connected. Not sure what to do at this point, so if anyone has any ideas that would be awesome.

This is the most weird camera I have ever seen, you have a miniDV tape camera appartently without a Firewire I/O connector.  I just looked at this Canon specification  http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=177&modelid=1620 6#ModelTechSpecsAct
and there is nothing about a Firewire/IEEE-1394/etc.  Without a firewire interface Premiere is unable to capture video.  apparently there is some software supplied with the camera, maybe it can capture the video via the USB interface to your computer and then (if it is the correct format) you can import it to Premiere.
