Welcome to the forum.
Here is a similar discussion in Elements Village. The error is similar, but with only the # at the end being different.
If there is nothing helpful to you in that discussion, then I would look at this ARTICLE and post as much info on your system, the Project's Preset and your Source Files, as you can.
Good luck, and please let us know how the comments in that discussion work for you.
Also, please let us know what kind of camcorder you're capturing from and how you've connected to your computer as well as which Get Media tool you used to capture.
It would also be helpful to know your operating system and computer specs (Windows 7 64-bit are notorious for having capture problems) and if you have the latest version of Quicktime installed.
Can you please elaborate more on the details of your camera? Is it DV,HDV ? What project settings are you using?
That was my first request. I'll try to be more detailed. I'm using a
Dell XPS 410 with two 500 gig internal hard drives and one external 500 gig
hard drive. Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 CPU, 6700 @ 2.66 GHz, 4.00 GB Ram & N
Vidia GeForce 7900 GS. I'm trying to download from a Sony Handicam Mini DV,
DCR-PC330 NTSC, using Premiere Elements, Version 9.00. During the middle of
capture, elements quits working and I get the error message " Premiere
nothing is downloaded to the computer and the scenes are not split on the
timeline. Can anyone help?

1st, if you have Win7
2nd, try one of these instead
SD capture http://windv.mourek.cz/ or http://www.scenalyzer.com/main.html or http://www.exsate.com/products/dvcapture/
Do note that the demo version of ScenalyzerLive puts a watermark in the files it creates
- I'm told that the OLD version of Scenalyzer is freeware... check the download page for details
Are all of your drives formatted NTFS rather than FAT32 (as they come from the factory)? FAT32 drives have a file size limited that often chokes video editing and would certainly abort a miniDV capture as you describe.
Can you ensure you have enough free space left on your hard drive? Also, are you giving the correct path to save the file? Just check that you are not giving any external location as the Save To path: it might not work.
