If it can't format, get a new card.

you can try running a FULL format in your computer to check for errors. Once it's complete, try formatting in the camera again.

ah I see it's IN the camera. and a quick format is not working out.  

 

Agree    bring it to a sd card slot  and  make sure hte write lock  is OFF  and if it fails return the card for a new one, if it has a return policy, or Contact the  company for a replacement  before throwing out (WINK)  never know, you may get a new card.
