Many manufacturers of "scanners" have not released any device-drivers for the scanners for Microsoft Vista/7/8 -- they stopped with the Windows XP software. Check the manufacturer's web-site, to look for any declaration of "support" (or "unsupported") or any updated device-drivers for your specific model.
You just need to plug one end of the firewire (IEEE 1394) cable into the external hard drive and the other end in the slot on the computer marked IEEE 1394. Sometimes you have a IEEE 1394 slot on the front panel, and sometimes it's just on the back of the PC.

I have been unsuccessful with USB connections on PC. I purchased IEEE 1394 firewire cable 4pin to 6pin and it worked out better. Make sure you want to fresh cold start the computer and connect the cable before you start the video editing program. -James
if your pc has firewire IEEE 1394 ports then it does not need them added, if it does not then it needs them added,
firewire, IEEE 19394 cables have a pc end that is flat D shaped and a device end that is rectangular with one side bent in.
if you have a socket on the backplane of the pc that looks like the ones in the background
then you have firewire, else you can buy a pci firewire card for any vacant slot for ~$20.00
if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.
I have found you a Manual if that is of any help?
All I can think of is a faulty cable? Also sometime just changing the PCI slot will help?
1. CHECK CAMCORDER CONNECTIONS AND SETTINGS.
1. The DV Camcorder is turned on and connected by the power adapter (not battery)
2. The Camcorder is in Play Mode.
3. The IEEE 1394 cable is properly connected from you camcorder to the IEEE 1394 card.
If you have checked these steps and the camcorder is still not detected, then the camcorder driver is most likely not loaded.
2. CHECK DEVICE MANAGER TO VERIFY THAT CAMCORDER DRIVER IS LOADED.
1. Go to Device Manager by clicking on Programs > Settings > Control Panel > System. (In Windows 2000 you have the additional steps of clicking on Hardware > Device Manager).
2. Under the device heading called Imaging Devices, you should see a device called "Samsung DV Camera or DV Camcorder".
If you have an exclamation point "!" on this device, highlight the device by clicking on it and then click the Remove and Refresh buttons for Windows 98SE and ME. For Windows 2000, click on the uninstall icon, then click on the scan for new hardware icon. Even if the camcorder device does not have an exclamation point "!" on it, you can remove it and reload it.
With Windows ME and Windows 2000, and Windows XP, the 1394 camcorder driver is built into the operating system by Microsoft and is already loaded on your system. With Windows 98SE the files are located on the 98SE CD in the Win98 folder.
If the device is not listed, please check all of items in step #1 above. If it continues to be a problem, there may be a problem with the:
1. Camcorders firewire port
2. 1394 cable
3. The 1394 host controller card
Samsung does not support Firewire Components. You must consult the manufacturer of your Firewire product(s).
