    Memory Card Error

    Look on the side of the card, there will be a small white switch, be sure it's in the unlocked position. It sometimes can get moved and then the card becomes locked. A 4 year old card should be replaced with a new one, over time they wear out and you don't want to take a bunch of pics and have none saved due to an old, defective card.

    Absolutely - 4 years old? Good gosh! These cards should be replaced every 6-months to a year.

    Just buy another card or three.

    Memory cards can go bad, as well as getting locked by accident. If it is not locked by the manual switch which would be indicated by either a lock symbol or the words "Lock" or "Hold" then I would probably say your card is toast. Hope I helped good luck.
