USB 3 to Firewire adapter? Should do the trick.
Even if one were to buy a firewire to USB adapter, Premiere Pro would not recognize it, unless some major change took place while I wasn't watching.
The solution is to buy a cheap desktop with firewire, or put an inexpensive firewire card in one you have access to. Or find someone who will let you capture on their PC. Maybe a library with liberal policies? Or sweet talk a librarian. A local school with a good AV department? Maybe you could donate the firewire card in exchange for the use of the PC?
Buying a laptop without firewire is a questionable move for people with firewire based cameras.
I've never heard of it being succussfully used to capture video.
Just a straight plug-to-plug adapter? I just tried one I bought yesterday but PP couldn't see it or the camera
Premiere Pro does NOT know anything about USB ports. Never has and it is unlikely that it ever will.
I don't know Peter, but he may merely be a bit confused about what you were asking, or he may be unfamiliar with that particular part of the way Premiere Pro works.
Did software come with the adapter, and does it work, and if it works, what kind of file is created?
Well, I managed a workaround, harking back to my Mac days ! I dug out my old iMac with iMovie, plugged in my Roxio dongle, and voila! Digital video capture
Capturin to my 1TB Passport, back to PP CC and...SUCCESS!!
Thanks to all—and to my old iMac! Almost sorry I left Apple for Windoze !

There was a time we would have had to tell you that the codec you used was not appropriate for Premiere Pro. But nowadays it takes in almost anything.
Glad to hear you got it worked out. Hopefully without any loss of visual quality.
