eMac / Firewire Issue? [Camcorder not seen]



Hi guys,

Just got my refurb eMac form apple this past saturday, coming from XP for the past 3 years, you can imagine I have encountered some frustrations. I got the mac in hopes of making some movies with iMoive, however have been un succesful thus far. I plug in my sony "DCR-TCR140" Digital 8 Handycam and it never gets reconized in OSX (10.2.8).

I have been googling for hours and still unsuccesful, I did the hardware test from the cd that apple included, but to no avail, I dont think it tested the IEEE1394. Can someone point me in the right direction?
