If you had it working before consider yourself one of the lucky ones. Vista is notorious for not recognizing firewire devices, especially camcorders. Try going to the Hardware Manager and updating the IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controller driver. When prompted, you can search in the WINDOWS\WINSXS directory and make sure the Subfolders box is checked. It may show that the driver is the incorrect one but continue to install it.
Afterward try plugging in your camcorder and see if it shows up.

This is due to the improper closing of the cover below the cassette compartment(where the USB, 3894 ports r there)

I want to capture movie from dv tape to compaq presario notebook


You are mentioning that you are trying to transfer video though USB port, that is not possible, you have to connect the to the pc through the DV port from the camera to the Firewire port of the PC, if your PC doesnt have a Fire wire port, install a IEEE1394 firewire card in one of your PCI slots.
