Getting error message "Memory card requires formatting"

\015 I have been using my camera for months and now when I turn on I get this message "Memory Card requires formating" This is not a new card and was empty when I started so it was taking photos fine and had only 10 or so pics so there is plenty of room remaining. I have reformated and the camera will be fine for a few pics but if I turn off and come back to it in a couple of hours or so I get the same message again. Which means I lose all of my pictures.\015
