DSLR error "card can not create folder"

I have a Canon T3i for a few years now. All of a sudden it is not taking pictures and I cannot see old pictures either. Giving an eror message saying "card can not create folder".

Any idea what might be wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you,

Either card is corrupt or you have write-protection enabled on the card.

Since you can't see older pictures, it's likely that the card got corrupted. You may need to run a undelete program to recover old files and then reformat the card.

Yes tried using 3 different cards. All were inserted into a computer, which probably corrupted it.

Thank you guys.
