Re: My recommendation whereever I see issues like this ....

I always do a full format of a new card and I always do a format in each camera as well. A quick format clears the FAT which is already clear and so accomplishes nothing.  The format process in the camera also only clears the FAT and creates a folder for the image files and nothing more.

The full format is one way to try to detect any bad sectors or a corrupted FAT area in a new card. I would not expect that the card manufacturers would take the additional time  and expense involved to format every memory card they produce before shipping it out.
