When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory.

Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year.
