Does your computer have a FireWire/IEEE-1394 connection? (Most new computers don't.) If not, you'll need to install an IEEE-1394 card into your computer in order to capture tape-based HDV.
If you do, you can capture the video using a program like the free HDV Split. Tape-based HDV captured by this program over a FireWire connection is 100% compatible with Premiere Elements.
You have been given a popular workaround for your HDV data capture firewire using HDVSplit.
Are you aware that Premiere Element 13/13.1 and 14/14.1 do not have that feature any longer. The last version of Premiere Elements to have the DV and HDV data capture firewire into a Premiere Elements capture window is Premiere Elements 12/12.1. Adobe wrote about this in the following document and offered its own workarounds for the situation.
So, this is not just an issue of a camera not being recognized by Premiere Elements 14/14.1.
Do you have Premiere Elements 12/12.1 or earlier that you might use for these HDV capture firewire? Also, please explore issue separate from Premiere Element, that is, Microsoft firewire drivers and Windows 10 issues.
