Unfortunately, you can not capture DV over USB in Premiere Elements. Premiere Elements can only capture from a miniDV or HDV camcorder over a FireWire connection.

Laptop or desktop?
If desktop, buy a card to plug into the motherboard

I'm running on a desktop with Windows 7 (moved from XP with recent rebuild), now find my basic capture software won't run on W7. I also have a laptop with Vista.
Thanks for the links. I will check out the other threads this evening.

As Steve said, you must have a Firewire connection at the computer end to capture from a tape camera
As I said, the default Win7 driver does not work well... see the legacy driver links
