The ability to capture video from miniDV camcorders was discontinued in version 13, Bruno.
There are third-party options, however, that produce files that are compatible with Premiere Elements, when captured over a FireWire connection.
On Windows, use the free download WinDV.
On a Mac, iMovie captures your video as DV files.
On what computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 13/13.1 running?
Adobe has a document for workarounds for the Premiere Elements 13/13.1 discontinued capture firewire feature that you ask about. Please review
Assuming Windows computer for now, others have suggested
HDVSplit for HDV HDVSplit 0.77 beta
Kind of exactly what I already said.
