I could be wrong, but I don't believe that it can be - though I have never tried - this is only a guess. Most cameras today, rather than being recognized as imaging devices by windows - are simply recognized as a mass storage device - the same as a pen drive or external hard drive. This has many advantages - but one disadvantage is the one that you mention. Are you using the Sony Software? Perhaps a driver installed from their imaging software will allow the computer to recognize the camera as an imaging device? Other than that, I can't think of anything else.

I have an older DSC-P52 camera and am having trouble


There is no reason why the MicroSD adapter shouldn't work in the camera providing the card adapter is the right size for the camera.

I myself use an adapter in my own camera and have no problems with it.

Take a picture with the camera and download it to your computer. If the picture also shows up black, then this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Sony should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:
