If it is a card you have used successfully before, then it sounds like it has become corrupted. You may be able to recover pics from it by connecting to a computer, perhaps using a card reader. If not, you will have to format the card to use it again, but will lose the pictures on it.

Are you using the camera to format the card ? I had a similar problem with a 3V 16MB card in my Fuji MX1200. I used the "Format" capability, oddly located in the "Trashcan"/erase mode, but it "initialized"/formatted the card with no problems or error messages after that. Hopefully you have a similar format function on your camera. The URL I'm referencing here is for the MX-1200, but you may find your camera elsewhere on this excellent site (not mine).
Glad I helped the first time.Let's see if I do as well again. What I often see when memory cards are used in external reader (especially with Macs), is that the Mac writes files back on the card. Usually the file(s) are just data files and don't really do anything, until the camera tries to access the card. Camera says "I don't recognize that file. I sure didn't create it", and proceeds to reject the card. Usually if you open the card in the computer, you'll see a file or folder that wasn't there before (other than the one the camera creates). It may be a hidden folder, so you might need to change settings to show hidden files also. If you delete that unneeded file, the camera should recognize the card again, without having to re-format it.
