If you have a SD card reader on your computer, you can plug it in there. Click Start, My computer, then the drive the card is connected to (on my system it's the F:\ drive). Right click on the drive and select Format. You can pick either FAT or FAT32 (FAT32 should be the default). Either one will work. It should only take a few short seconds. Once done, your card is formated.

I'm assuming you are trying to use an SD card in your camera and not the internal memory. I suggest you format the memory card if you are sure there is nothing on the card. Formatting the memory card deletes everything on the card and sets it up with a file system that your camera recognizes. Follow these steps to format your memory card using your camera.
1. Turn camera off
2. Insert memory card
3. Turn camera on
4. When the memory card is inserted in the camera,
the [Format card] option appears in the setup
5. Choose Format to format the entire card. Don't choose Quick Format
6. Wait until your card is formatted
After formatting your memory card, try turning your camera off and on and you should now be able to take pictures to your memory card.
P.S. If you remove your memory card you can choose Format Memory from the setup menu to format the camera's built-in internal memory
Sometimes, Due to viruses or hidden data in the memory card, the handset is unable to format the memory card.
so if u format it from a pc, using a card reader, your mem card will surely get formatted easily..
But if there is some technical problem in formating,
download HP DRIVE KEY BOOT UTILITY
It repairs up and formats the corrupted data and your memory card will be ready to use again ..
Happy formatting !
