This could have been anything. You certainly did not use it too many times. A card should be able to reformat far more than 4 times. I say just replace the card. For all you know, it might be camera, but replacing the card will eliminate one variable and could solve the problem. If it happens again on a new card, you have a larger issue and should contact Panasonic. But honestly, that card is $36.56 at B&H. Don't wait until it's a 10 frame skip or a drop out completely. That type of mistake will cost far more than a card replacement.

In the meantime, you may want to contact Lexar and try to get them to replace your current card. It is probably still under some sort of a warranty.

Also bare in mind that SD cards are not built for professional acquisition. As hard a pill as they may be to swallow, P2, SxS, REDMAGs, are all built and tested for thousands of formats, thousands of plug ins and outs, and years of use. SD cards are built to be replaceable. In the end, you get what you pay for, always.
