How do I download video from my Digital Video Camera recorder(AG-DVX100) to my MacBook Pro?

I am trying to download video from my Panasonic Digital Video Camera Recorder (Model AG-DVX100) onto my Macbook Pro. The camera records to MiniDV tapes. I have a firewire that should be working, but when I connect it to the computer it doesn't recognize that anything is connected.
