    Sounds like a bad card. Try another card to see if that's the case.

    Oh, sorry, I thought you said you were having troubles formatting it on your computer, too.

    Were you able to successfully format the card on your computer?

    Try this again...

    Options>Media Card>Menu Button>Format Media Card

    Did you update your OS system? If you haven't that may be the reason. Sometimes your phone can't handle that much which is why they stick you with a 256mb memory card when you buy the phone.
