I have Canon XHA1s, And Canon 5D.
I can't speak to the Canon 5D. However, I routinely capture either HDV or SD from my XHA1 via firewire (IEEE1344) right into PrPro using the "capture" dialog trigerred by pressing F5.
You don't state how your capture is failing--this is going to limit the help you are getting.
I could not see my XHA1s, inside the Capture
Set capture settings in Premiere's Caputure window to hdv, set all settings in camera to 1080i and not auto.
See of you can capture on another pc.
Or use HDVSplit.
