Connecting Sony DCR firewire

Hello
I try to connect an old cam firewire DV Sony DCR-HC18E. The video device appears in Boinxtv but don’t be select.
I restart cam, boinxtv and disconnect all.
There is no change
Thanks for help

If a device is greyed out, it means that BoinxTV previously found this device but it is not present at the moment. Please open BoinxTV Preference, go to devices and delete all occurrences of the camera. Now restart BoinxTV with the camera connected, switched on an set to “Camera” mode.

I delete all occurrences of the camera and restart but the video device don’t appear again…

Then your Mac doesn’t recognize it as a video device. Please make sure the cabling is still working.
