Yeah some people have problems with this..
First make sure you have the P2 Drivers installed for the camera. Then make sure you have the updated drivers for the 16gb cards or greater, if that is what you are using..

I have found that you dont need to shut your computer off, but you do need to make sure that the camera is off when plugging in the FW cable to both the camera and the Computer port. Once plugged in, you turn the camera on, press the MCR button, once the thumbnails appear, then press and hold the MCR button to put the device into FW mode.

Also once you are done copying the cards or whatever workflow you are using, reformat the cards in the camera. Do not delete data either on the computer and try not to delete clips on the camera. When you delete clips on the camera, the thumbnails will remain. This can cause a problem when downloading data.

Hope this helps..
