Starting with version 13, Premier Elements stopped "capturing" video from tape based formats. Your camera is listed as using the Mini DV tape format.
If you are using a Mac, you can capture your video with iMovie and it will be editable in Premiere Elements. I can't tell you how, because I've never had a Mac, used iMovie or "captured" from tape. I suspect iMovie saves the captured file that is then opened in Premier Elements.
If you shoot a lot of video, consider upgrading the camera. Big improvements have been made since tape based video recording.
Thank you for your feedback and advice. I will probably capture from i movie and then use those files from Premiere for editing. However I am not sure this situation is due to the DV tape format because I face exactly the same problem with Adobe Photoshop element and my new Nikon Photo Camera D 750. The Nikon camera is also not recognize when i try to transfer pictures from Camera to PC using Photoshop (either from the camera or from a card reader (i need to use a Nikon Software or I photo). It is correct that with Photoshop or Premiere 12 this was not happening.
Thank you again

What is your "transfer process"?
With digital cameras like the D750 all images are digital files. You can transfer or copy the files in many ways. There is no "capturing process". I'm not sure what Nikon does, but the video files probably end in ".MP4". If the camera is set to a common format, you shouldn't have difficulty copying the files to your computer and adding the media to Premier Elements. You have to get the files on your computer. Leaving them on the camera or card will cause project failure.
Photo files that end in ".JPG" are universal. There is no reason that Photoshop Elements or Premier Elements will reject JPEG files. If you shoot RAW photo files that end in ".NEF" they will be rejected by Photoshop Elements/Premier Elements 12. It has to do with how camera companies design their RAW formats and how Adobe incorporates those designs. Specific to the D750, it was included in "Adobe Camera Raw" or "ACR" tables starting with version 8.7. For that, you need Elements version 13 or newer.
Adobe does provide a free utility that will convert your .NEF files to .DNG files that Elements 12 can use.
Get yourself a usb card reader instead of hooking up the nikon to the computer.
usb card reader is much faster.
And please do not quote large text. Takes up a lot of unnessecary space - Mod.
The problem there, Ann, is that philippe's camcorder is an HDV camcorder, which records HDV video to tape. The video is ported to a computer over a FireWire connection rather than USB.
Philippe, can you confirm that you've got your Sony camcorder connected via a FireWire connection?
Ah sorry was referring to the Nikon.
The fx7 does not have usb at least not for capturing video
Solution is already given by OP. capture over firewire with IMovie, edit with Elements 14
