So after posting above, I got to thinking that why would only 2 of my 5 batteries give this error?  And why is everyone else only reporting it with non-genuine batteries?  3 of my batteries came with my cameras (7D, 5D2 and 5D3) and 2 I bought back in 2011 when I only had the 7D but I had thought I was buying genuine batteries.  So I went back and found where I bought them from on Amazon and now see that the reviews say they aren't genuine batteries!!  That solves that mystery.  They always had registered fine and I never had any problems and thought they were genuine all this time.  Oh well, those two can live in the 7D and 5D2 that I don't often use.  I'll keep the the 3 genuine in the 5D3 rotation.

On Amazon, if it's not sold buy Amazon.com then 90% of the canon battery is fake.
