Problems with firewire

I also bought a new PC with Vista and discovered it didn't support the Sony DCR-HC24.
i decided to get a firewire card and connect it this way.
the only problem is when i connect the camera to the PC, it only recognises it for about 1/2 a second before pinging that it's been disconnected
I've tried the software that came with the firewire card, Windows Movie Maker, and WinDV, all with the same result.
Please help with this as it's really annoying?
Could the type of firewire cable have anything to do with this?
