Delkin Card error

And that is the reason 2 cards are essential.
The second card set to duplicate saved the day.
After a VIP portrait session, The Delkin black decided to ask for a format! I thought the Z9 went kuku, but the PC asked the same Please format”

Suddenly the Z9 refused to take pictures.
The shutter speed, aperture, went missing. Only the ISO showed. Removing - reattaching the lens (50mm f1.8), removing the battery, nothing helped. When I pressed the image review the Z9 showed, Can’t displays image, please format card 1.

I pulled the Delkin and continued the session with only the second card Angelbird 1TB.

Luckily I didn’t lose any pictures. I quickly copied them over to the PC and external drive.

What’s the cause for such behavior?
Is there anything to prevent this in the future?

The card was not hot, it was an outdoor session 7pm no baking sun and the weather was breezy.

Thanks in advance.
