HDV camcorders offer "downconversion" to DV on the 1394 output when playing back HDV recordings. If your recording is HDV, but you can only capture it as DV, then this is the issue. Also, if you have deck control and timecode but no video, indicates the same issue. In the camera menu, turn OFF the "i.Link Convert" feature, and also set VTR to "HDV", rather than "DV" or "Auto".
With camera off, disconnect 1394 cable to computer, and close editing app. Reconnect 1394, and power on camera (in playback mode), and PC should recognize camera. Then you can start Premiere and should be able to capture HDV.

Aloha braddah JTS,
The tape I was trying to capture was not shot by me or in my camera...so, as soon as I experimented with a change to the sequense setting to capture DV instead of HDV the capture was successful.
Mahalo plenty for your input...your referral to the article was what reminded me to go back and try a new sequence with a change in sequence settings...besides the article had a referral to another article that I found useful so I got a 2fer...
I haven't been using any of my video or CS-PP for almost 2 years since moving from a Condo to a Home...so all of a sudden I don't dive and collect video and don't make time to sit down an edit so, no Adobe time either.
Again Mahalo-n-aloha from the big Island and Kona...konadon
Aloha Ms. bens and Safeharbor11,
I resolved my issue after reading the article referred by John T. Smith.
My error was in assuming the tape I was trying to capture (not a tape I shot) was shot in HDV. so, upon changing the setting to capture DV, the capture process went smoothly...
Many mahalos-n-alohas for taking time to reply...konadon
See replies to John t. Smith and Ann Bens...this terminates my issue.
