canon has a slightly different firewire standard I've heard and can be fussy. try the reset button on the cam.

try to have the camera powered on and in play mode then power up computer and open editing app. I got so tired of this dance that lately I just copy the tapes to a ki pro as ProRes 422. You might want to convert to SD in the editor not from the cam. You might try a sony deck instead of a camera.
