Flash memory....replaced???

Do you mean reformat??

Why would it need to be replaced if it has no moving parts??

What would "wear-out" ??

Thanks

Dean.
No, replaced, not reformatted. (It's always good to reformat after dumping pictures to your PC, though.) Flash memory has a finite number of write cycles--see this document, especially the "flash cell endurance" section:
