Canopus ADVC-55 using with MAC

Hi, I just bought the Canopus ADVC-55 analog to digital converter. My little six yr old daughter was killed last year and I have some very precious sony mini DVD hanycam video of my girl that I want to store electronically on my Macbook Pro. I have run the audo/video cable from my handycam to the Canopus converter box and have run the firewire cable into my mac. I then opened imovie and the ADVC-55 interface opened in imovie. When I start playing the video footage on my camcorder I cannot see the video in imovie and therefore cannot copy/record into my laptop. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong and/or need to do differently. Thank you so much in advance. Morgan.
