How do I format a PNY 4GB SD memory chip to be used in a C875?

I just received a SanDisk, ElitePro, 32GB memory chip for my Kodak C875 camera. Upon chip insertion LCD says, "disc requires formatting", "continue", "formatting will delete everything on memory card", "continue", "formatting", (then back to)"disk requires formatting" ...and so on in a doom-loop. Is it possible the chip's capacity is too large for the camera's software? If not, how can I proceed to use the chip in the C875?

I have a Nikon E5400, ver 1.3. I bought a 4GB Kingston CF card; the package said "formatted and ready to use". On inserting into camera, the message flashed that the card is not formatted. So I proceeded to format. The next message that flashes is "Out of Memory". Questions: 1) is the CF card defective? 2) is E5400 incapable of reading a 4GB CF card, should we use only CF cards <1GB? 3) Will a firmware version upgrade to v1.4 help? 4) Any other reason why this could happen?

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pic
