Have problems capturing HDV Footage

My school has a JVC GY - HD100 and I tried to capture HDV in Adobe Premiere and the setting were all correct, HDV 1080i, but I kept getting this message saying premiere can't detect a Camcorder. Help?

p.s. I captured 720p in Adobe Onlocation but the clip isn't AVI?

Ensure that the camcorder is in HDV mode before connecting it to your PC via FireWire otherwise Windows may decide it is a DV camcorder. A guaranteed way to do this is to put the camcorder in pause mode on an HDV tape. Also, make sure you haven't enabled HDV->DV down conversion.

Everything was shot in HDV and i didn't enable the down conversion, but I didn't do the pause, so I'll try it

Make sure you put it in pause mode before you connect the camcorder to the computer.

Just because you haven't enabled the down conversion, doesn't mean that it wasn't set as default previously. It's worth checking.
