Video Importing Problems via Firewire

Advertisement

Hi there !
Few days ago, i've imported footage from my sony camera via Firewire connection in IMovie 09, It was my 1st time to capture videos in SNOW LEOPARD.
then i've captured videos in IMovie 09 using ISight,
and after capturing videos with ISight, i can't capture videos from any other Video camera via Firewire.
IMovie 09, or Adobe Premiere CS4 don't recognize/see/show Firewire connected Video Cameras, but ONLY ISIGHT !!!!!!!!!!!!! TOTAL NIGHTMARE !
Please guys fix this problem, it's such a shame that Snow Leopard has such an exception error,
are we going to have such strange problems like the WINDOWS VISTA users ??
