For several years I have been connecting my Canon Optura 20 digital camera to my iMac G5 with a firewire to transfer film.  Lately, when I connect the firewire cable the display continually blinks "DV IN" in the bottom right corner of the video camera display.  I know that the cable has made connection when the "DV IN" stops blinking.  After a long period of time of connecting and unconnecting I can eventually get the connection.  Today I have been trying for over an hour and I cannot get the "DV IN" to stop blinking.  Anyone have any suggestions for me?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
