    Premier 7 doesn't recognize dv camera


      Premiere 7 doesn't recognize Canon DV camera for capture. Computer is quad-core 64-bit, 8 GB RAM, 1G internal hard drive; connection is via firewire. Windows and Explorer both recognize that camera is connected but Premier doesn't. When I first started trying to capture, I was able to get a few seconds of video, now nothing, but even then I had to use manual DV camera control...so it acts as though it's not connected, even though the computer says it it. I installed the card with the firewire connection when I bought the  computer, so I thought maybe it was not connected properly, but would  the computer recognize the camera if the firewire connection wasn't  good?

      I tried the camera with the same firewire connection on my old computer (dual core 32-bit, 4 GB RAM) and capture worked fine.

      Appreciate any help. Thanks.
