Firewire- Need help connecting Camcorder

Windows 7, Home edition, 32 bit. Desktop Computer

I bought a Firewire card to plug my Panasonic DV camcorder in my computer. I want to transfer my video to a editing software, or direct to my hard drive, then make a DVD.

I plug in the camcorder, turn it on, and I get a message saying it's already in use. close or shut down program.??

I can't figure out what's going on. Can't download any video to any type of program.

Any ideas where to look/proceed? Thank You
