Try formatting the memory card in your computer first, then install it in your camera and formatting it again in the camera using the cameras set up menus.

To do this connect the card to your computer using either the card slot in the computer or an external card reader. If you don't have either of these you can get an external reader at most any store that sells consumer electronics for less than $10.

Once you have the card connected go to my computer l, then right click on the drive that shoes up and click format. Set the files system to either FAT or FAT32, then click format.

Once this is done, reinstall the card in your camera and access the menu, then the setup (wrench icon) menus and look for the option to format. Format the card in your camera and try it again.
