SD cards have a small slider tab on the side which write protects a card. Try sliding it the other way and see if this works.

There is a little switch on the side of the SD card - it may be set to protect. See if you can move it.

There is a small switch inside the camera that is operated by the tab on the side of the card that others have mentioned you check. 

This switch can get damaged or go open circuit after years of card insertion. 

I believe you can bridge the switch on the circuit board. 

Also the camera still works, so you can save images to a USB tethered PC instead of the card.
