Check the number of operations on a P2 card

Is there any way of checking the health/status of a P2 card?

We have four 16 GB E-series P2 cards, and they have been in use for some years now.

Just to be sure we won't end up in corrupted files, I figure there's a way to check the cards. Either for replacement, or simply just start shooting on any of the card that has not been used as much as the others.

(We have numbered the cards and they are always put in the corresponding slot, and we manually choose which card would be used for initial recording).

Sure, I could just skip numbering the card and invent a system where they are rotated in the slots...

P2Formatter will show a status bar on the remaining life of the card.
