WEIRD - XL1s says "DV IN", but camera is problem, not firewire card.

    I have been troubleshooting my firewire card, connection, etc. for days
    thinking I had a firewire card setup issue. I did every trouble
    shooting that has been posted. I have a Canon XL1s, using AC power,
    connecting through firewire. I figured the camera was still fine given
    "DV IN" displays on the camera. However after finally going back and
    forth, I got a friend's Canon GL1, plugged it into my computer and it
    found their camera instantly and brought up the video capture window.
    Of course when I plug my XL1s into the firewire I get nothing. Before
    I put the camera into repair, any suggestions why the camera does
    recognize "DV IN" but isn't really fully connected? Thank you for your
    time and efforts.
