You should not need the disk to format

There should be a format option in the menus. Tools or setup.

If you're formatting the SD card, you can do that with a flash card reader. Its faster than using the camera to format the card.

    I do this, but when I go to upload my photos from it, it says I: can not be formatted and won't work?

    Some SD cards have a write protect switch on the edge. Check your card and see if the switch has moved to the write protect position.

    You can try chkdsk in a dos command prompt. Sometimes this will work to revive the card. There are also free flash card recovery tools that you can try to recover the card from. Try googling flash card recovery tools.

    Memory cards do go bad. Its possible the card is bad.

Dowloading instructions for a Hitachi HDC-1496EP camera

I think you mean, you can't read the manual. Most manuals are PDF files and need a PDF reader. I'm using a MAC, but I don't know where to find the PDF reader. Try ADOBE and download the free PDF reader from there.
