From what I have read of your camcorder, it is a miniDV type.
Now in Premiere Elements 13, Adobe has discontinued DV data and HDV data capture firewire into any Premiere Elements Capture Window.
As I see it, you could explore capture firewire into another program and then bring the captured files into Premiere Elements 13 with its Add Media/Files and
Folders from their computer hard drive save location.
DV - Windows Movie Maker or WinDV WinDV
HDV - HDVSplit HDVSplit 0.77 beta
The DV and HDV data capture firewire into a Premiere Elements Capture Window exists in many versions earlier than 13.
We are not Adobe here. Rather user to user. Adobe has the final say on the feature set decision for a given version.
Please let us know if you have any questions or need clarfication further on this matter.
