I assume you're trying to import the footage on the video camera into iMovie? (I hope so, because I don't think video recorders are recognized by Mountain Lion alone).
I just did a quick check of the compatible video recorders for iMovie 11, but didn't see that model in the list. Here's the list I looked at:
If it's not compatible, there's not much you can do, I'm afraid.

I believe that in order to be recognized, you have to start the process from within iMovie of Final Cut; as for your FW port, you can try these two different troubleshooting steps (may or may not work, but won't hurt):
It may that your FW port is defective; it that turns out to be the problem, I hope you purchased Applecare because those ports are an integral part of the logic board, so that would have to be replaced ($$$).
Since your footage is on DV tapes, you do need the FW to transfer it or it will not work. One other (involved) way would be to transfer your footage to a DVD if you have a DVD recorder and then get it on the Mac from there.

The new OSX 10.9.1 is not reading nor connecting with the language of the camera, I went to canon support, apple support and as of today there is nothing we can do, unless you downgrade your OS to 10.6.8
I still looking

You may not realize that this thread is more than a year old and the OP was not using Mavericks (and has not been active here for months).
