Has your firewire worked with any other application? Here's a blog with some discussion about the problem, but they claim that running XP, the firewire should be detected automatically, and the drivers installed.
Here's a web blog that might help:

Camcorder on Computer


The USB cable is to download still images only. To download video, you need (1) a firewire cable, (2) a firewire port on the computer, and (3) a video editing software program used to download and edit the video.

What kind of cable do I need to upload my video tapes to my computer. I have a Canon Optura 50 mini DV


you need a firewire cable
it is also called IEEE 1394.
however you need a firewire port on your computer as well.
if you don't have a port like that, then you can buy a firewire pci card.
ask at your local electronics shop.

FireWire for camcorder mini dv


Go to this link. Click on "Frequently Asked Questions" and then click on the appropriate link (#4). Basically, once the firewire cable is connected, make sure that the camcorder is in the playback mode, is turned on, and you see "DV IN" on the LCD. If all that is happening, your computer/software should be able to "see" the camcorder and download the video.

How do I transfer a recorded tape to my computer


You need IEEE (Firewire) or "DV" cable to transfer video from the camcorder to your computer. The connection is "DV" and is located on the front of the camera next to the "S" port. The marketing for this camera was deceiving...most customers thought they could hook up the USB to their computer and upload video...well you can't

Video transfer from Canon Optura 10 to Apple iMac


It should work well with Apple iMovie that came with your mac. There is a new version (imovie 09) that is said to be a major improvement over imovie 08 (the version that likely came with your computer). It is part of the iLife suite of multimedia Apple software. Available for $79 from the apple store. Here's a link to the store page. Buy now

Transfer Problem


I just went through exactly what you are describing and my solution was to install a Firewire card. The DV cable transfers my video's from the camera's cassette to my PC with no breakdown in quality. I'm very happy with this. The USB only works with the memory card, (quality is lost) Got my Firewire card on Ebay cheap, and it came with the cable and the software.
