The firewire cable is a bit loose on the camera, if you have no signal/picture on the computer, try pluging it in again. Then the easiest fix is to kill the xserver "ctrl alt backspace", and run "dc-record-stream" in a shell.

If there is no tape used in the camera, the camera sometimes freezes. Just powercycle the camera and use a tape!
