All versions of Premiere only CAPTURE (not upload, that is what you do on the Internet) from a tape camera with a Firewire connection
For a camera with memory or a hard drive you use Windows File Manager to copy the folder from the camera memory to a folder on your hard drive
For Premiere Pro, but the process is the same

I agree with John.
What model of camcorder are you using and how it is connected to your computer?
What steps did you use to interface Premiere Elements with your camcorder?
It might also help to know what operating system you're using.
