It's difficult for any techie to diagnose an occasional crash without seeing your computer at the time it crashes. Kind of like going to a doctor and saying "my leg hurt last month. Know why?" Also, you don't say what type of computer you have, PC or Mac.
That said, there are some "first steps" you should take, and, since you own a DS-4000, you should contact your Olympus dealer, since they're obligated to provide you with customer support (although it may not be free):

  1. May sure your software is up-to-date. Get the latest version to make sure you're not the victim of a bug. After you install the update, restart your computer for good measure.
  2. Turn off any applications or task bar tools that you're not using, particularly those that deal with cameras, scanners or memory cards. Adobe Photodownloader is a common culprit, as it interferes with the DS-4000, thinking it is a camera with a memory card.
  3. Update your Operating System. Always. Sometimes, the bugs are not with the Olympus equipment, but with Windows or MacOSX.
Good luck.

Had same problem. Found online handbook for DS-4000 and page 37 pointed way.
Press menu button on the handset.Go to sub menu. Page 37 of online handbook suggests you can lock and unlock from this but I used the format icon on the submenu to reformat the card. Seems to be working fine now.
