1. What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
2. What do you want to do....DV or HDV capture firewire into the Premiere Elements 13 Capture Windows or something else?
If you want to do DV or HDV capture firewire into Premiere Elements Capture Window and you are using Premiere Elements13,
then, as John has said, Premiere Elements 13 no longer has the DV HDV Capture feature. And, Adobe has pointed to
workaround for this situation in 13. Please see link already provided by John
If you are using the Windows, consider the Movie Maker 2012 (part of the Windows Live Essentials 2012) for your captures.
If you are using a Mac computer, consider the iMovie program for your captures.
Please clarify and let us know the details so that we can better advise you on the matter. As a reference point, Premiere Elements
12/12.1 is the last version to include the DV HDV capture firewire feature.
