SD cards should be formatted in the device that you use it (camera, MP3 player, ect.)

The problem is that I can't write the Raspbian OS for my raspberry pi onto the SD card because the space is too small. So I don't really see a way around that. I could see if Win32diskimager (the program used to put the image on the SD card) could do it, I'll have a go now :)
