Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P52 Digital Camera
Photo transfer problems are as likely to be related to software as to hardware. If you use photo-editing software other than what came with your camera, check the software's documentation and Web site to see if the manufacturer supports your camera. Download and install any software updates, as well.
If your photo-editing software can't detect your camera, make sure your camera is attached, turned on, and, if necessary, switched to transfer mode. Double-click the My Computer icon and look for an icon that corresponds to your camera. If you see an icon for your camera, you know that Windows detects your camera and that the problem is related to your photo-editing software.

Uninstall and reinstall the Zoombrowser. It looks like a driver or something with the program is corrupt. But, first read on before doing anything.
But, before doing the above, check the software and camera configuration. Also check to see that there are no other active programs running in the computer that may be taking presidence over the Canon software and accessing control of the camera's port, thus blocking Canon's software from being able to read the camera.
You can try calling Canon's tech support and ask the question. They will know their product the best.
A microdrive can fail much easier than a solid state memory card. I have had them fail. Mircodrives are fairly fragile compared to memory cards. Microdrives are mechanical devices. The new generation of memory cards are excellent.
I have an old digital camera with an IBM 1 GB microdrive. The present drive still works! It was terribly expensive when I bought it about 4 years ago. I am now using a 2 GB solid state memory card. I found it to be superior to the old microdrive.

SOURCE: can not download pictures
When I connect the camera to the computer, The " camera window" software will not come up. I must download the photos to another software program then transfer them to zoombrowser files from there.
I suspect the camera window software is starting but stays hidden. the hourglass icon comes up but disappears after a few seconds.

Have you installed drivers for it from either online or a cd-rom?
Did it ever work and if it doesn't now, when did it stop working?
