vista and camcorders using firewire

I have discovered , from several cameras and PCs, that current vista home premium, does not support certain canon minidv camcorders on firewire (and probably others as well) but does support some older cameras. it is also critical what exact update level you are on. I had it working on one desktop fine, but then when i ran windows update as had not done for some months on that pc, and updated about 12 important updates, after that it stopped. I have been seaching all over the web but seems a very common problem. I can only hope microsoft do another update and cure the problem.
