Sony DCR-VX2100E MiniDV to computer

It's impossible, I've tried everything and it simply won't connect to the computer. I'm using a fire-wire cable connected from the camcorder to the pc. It won't pick up anything.

Computer on; camcorder off.
Connect the firewire cable to the camcorder's DV port and the computer's firewire port.
Camcorder on to Play/VCR mode.
Launch the video editing application in the camcorder.
From the video editing application, select Import or Capture.
