If a memory card is taken out of a camera and stored will it keep the data stored on it permanently. Reason I ask is that the first memory card I purchased was replaced with a larger capacity one about two years ago. I checked the old one and it had nothing on it. I don't remember erasing it though.

ok, if you see your old card, you probably can recupera your pic, with a software, make a google search, and remember, unused card can be lock!

They should save, but you can lose them if the card fails; you should always backup to disc and print.

Something doesn't make sense.
Memory card should have kept all of your old data. I don't think this is the norm. If I were you try to test the card once again with new data and see what happens.
I suspect that #1 you forgotten erased #2 there was no data in the first place.

I agree, most likely the case.

There is one other possibility. Try a difference reader. We had, for some strange reason, an SD card that would be recognized on one reader but had no contents. Yet on other readers you could see the data. We figured it must have had something to do with how the card seated.
