Yes, if you go to "My Computer(XP) or "Computer"(Vista) and right click the slot where the card is inserted you'll see all the options, choose "format" and check "Quick format" you'll be all set after that. If not your card is faulty and must be replaced.
Forget the computer...the card needs to be formatted in the camera. This can be found in the setup menu. This will completely erase the card so if you have any pics on it, download them first using a card reader if necessary.
You need to reformat the card. Find the menu item, probably under 'System', or something like that, and reformat it. You should reformat your card every time you download you photos anyway, else the card can fail. If it won't reformat dump it and get another one.
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).
i don't know what memory card you are using but if it has a m or h on it it proably is not compatible w/out a firmware update-almost all cameras allow a card to be used w/out initalizing-see if you can format card in menus-will lose data-if nothing works assume it's type of card
