Hi I have figured it out. Even if the USB 2.0 is faster than the firewire the camcorder itself do not transfer at the optimal speed when connecting with the USB (even id the USB can transfer faster). So the only fast transfer option is the firewire

there are many post on various sites that state the same as you ihave the same prob with a sony which i paid £999,00 for and it wont connect i have been researching this problem for months on and of and cannot get any further, what may help you is some information that i have discovered , there are diffrent vers of firwire difrent baud rates this could be one reason for non detection ms sp1 has a diffrent ver to sp2 it is not easy to reinstall sp1 1394 as you need to diable cabbinet files to stop the reloading of the deleted sp2 speed 1394,ther are a few hotfixes avilable from ms on xp not suer about vista also if you plug a faster 1394 device into your machine it could diasble the slower ones , and now for the the killer any manufactur that incorporates 1394 in ther package has to purchase an extremly expensive license and microsoft are heavy into the development of usb stuf and are not concentrating on 1394 hence very little or no support, the only thing you could try is download virtual pc free from ms download site and install the op sys that pertains to the age of the cam good luck

I have a Sony Camcorder DCR-HC62E with same problem and found a workaround. The iLink seems not to be enabled in the camcorder except for only one of the working modes: setting PLAY/EDIT and then choosing STREAM. Once you get to this condition with the provided USB cable properly plugged at both ends, Windows recognizes a new device and asks for a driver, so you insert the provided Handicam Application Software disk and make Windows install it (I got a Windows message saying the driver is not safe but went on anyway).
Of course that in such a mode the Sony application "Import from Handycam (tape)" cannot and does not work, but using Microsoft Movie Maker and selecting File->Capture Video the camcorder is shown. Select it by clicking its icon and Next. On next screen Captured Video File define the required info and press Next. On next screen Video Setting select Best Quality.. and Next. On Captured Video screen be sure to have checked Create clips when wizzard finishes and proceed manually as follows: go to the beginning of the tape (or of the part you want to download) using the rewind/forward/play/stop controls in the camera. Once ready press Start Capture in Movie Maker and simultaneously Play in the camera, the filemed movie will show in the preview as it is played. When you're done stop camera play and press Stop Capture.
