You may have the card locked Find the small switch on the card to ensure it is not in the lock position.

Make sure you are using an SD card and not an SDHC card. The SDHC protocol is newer than your camera, and your camera does not support it. SD cards have capacities up to 2 GB. Your camera should work properly with any SD or MMC card.

SOURCE: Can't unlock 4gb sd memory card
There's a tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Slide it to the other position and try again.
But one thing I've noticed is that you mention that the card is 4GB. As such, it's likely that this card is an SDHC card. There is also a possibility that your A540 camera is not recognizing the card as the SDHC format came out well after the A540 was designed.
If you're still having problems with your 4GB card, recommend trying again with a standard SD card (2GB or less). 2GB standard SD cards are very inexpensive, and can be found on Amazon for about $7 with free shipping.
And hang onto the 4GB card. It will come in handy again someday.

Could be that you have the wrong memory card.
SD600 will only work with the old SD cards, but the SD780 will take the SDHC cards.
SDHC was intended to give 4gb or more of storage, while the old SD started as 16 mb. Different cameras have different limits, but it is always best to assume that the practical limit on an SD card is 2mb. Even if the SD780 will take the SDHC cards, it can be more practical to only carry 2GB SD cards and know that they will fit either camera

SOURCE: SD card locked
The lock switch on the SD card looks like a bit of plastic without any electronics. A bit like the write-protect tab on a 3.5" FDD.
So there must be a sensor in the reader / camera which detects the position of the switch. Maybe there is dirt in the sensor. The best way to check would be to try another SD card, but you could try blowing out any possible dirt and see if that fixes the problem. Can the camera write to the SD card?
Try moving the switch to lock and unlock status.
