My error comes up w/power on. The menu has the format option grayed out(so unavailable) but these cards can be formatted on other devices. I see that this is a very common problem. So if we are able to eliminate the card as the prob, then what is the 2nd most likely issue within the camera? Thanks.

If you format the card in a laptop or desktop, make sure you also format it again in the camera in which it will be used. Provided that the camera will allow you to do so. Also set the clock and calendar while you're in the set-up menus.
Like all items, some of them are dead on arrival. It's pretyt normal and it could be manufacture error, defective product, shipping and/or packing damage, etc...If it is new, you can exchange for another one.
As Hsbn mentioned, if you've saved your images and movies to your computer, I'd recommend formatting the memory card. If you're unable to do this, I recommend trying a second memory card. If the memory card error persists unfortunately, your camera will require repair.
