Try doing a battery pull and leave it our for 30 seconds or so. Pop it back in and try to format the card again. If that doesn't work, try formatting your card from your computer.

This happened to me with my first 4GB memory card. I formatted via phone and computer with no success. So I then had to send my memory card back for an exchange.
