Hey there, Missing_1

Unfortunately this is a typical behaviour for failing memory cards and USB flash drives. I'd recommend that you connect it to a computer or another device and try reformatting it again, to see if the same thing happens. Another option would be to do that via the SD card manufacturer's formatting tool (most of the USB flash drive and memory card manufacturers offer such utilities/tools), to see if it helps.
If nothing seems to be working, I'd recommend that you try to get your card replaced if it's still under warranty or get a new one.

Hope that helps.
