SOURCE: repair firewire Sony HDR-HC3
I have a HDR-HC3 and I had the same problem too... This model has ALOT of problems with transferring files and I need to pay $90 to get it repaired... Try it on a Mac, if iMovie cant pick it up it means you have a firewire problem.

I don't know if you would call this a solution but I do know that some computers or programs will not except certain cameras. For instance I have a Sony computer and the editing program I have is Adobe Premier which will not except footage from my JVC camera but will except the footage through my Canon camera. I think the Eggheads that design these programs just like to screw with people.
