      Was there any software drivers that came with the card and if so did you install them?

      Does your PC see the card?

      What OS are you running?

      When you plug in your camera does a little bubble come up out of the task bar saying something about a new device? Does the firewire card show up in the network connections folder or the device manager. Also make sure that premiere is set up to use DV Device Control. Also go into premieres capture settings and set it to use your camera or if it is not specifically listed use the generic panasonic.

      Try unplugging the card, reboot the system, shut down, and re-install the card. Sometimes the computer might have a brain fart and not recognise it correctly. Maybe the card wasn’t seated quite right in the slot. Be sure to pay attention to the bubble that pops up when it does see it, and be sure to follow any instructions the bubble might give you. There should have been an installation cd with the drivers for the card. Be sure to have that ready. The bubble will probably ask for it.

      Humm…

      If you are using Windows XP, as soon as you plug your camera in, XP should fire up a bubble icon in the lower right hand corner of the task bar as the other people have mentioned. However, you do have to make sure that your camera is on and that it’s set to VCR mode. Just plugging it in won’t generate the bubble. Also… gently insert the firewire jacks in and out on both ends (one at a time while your camera is on) and observe to see if anything happens. Sometimes these jacks can be kind of sensitive if they aren’t seated just right.

      Just helping in trying to cover all of the bases here.

      Make sure the firewire cable is good. If you have DV input enabled and still get nothing, your camera does not have a driver. The pop-up should say it has found new hardware, then identify the specific camera. You can borrow a friends camera and see what happens, or take you camera to somebody that can plug it into the PC. This will tell you if it’s the camera or your PC’s card.
