Formatting cards on the PC is not a good idea, I believe if you format the card in the old camera before transfering it to the new one will not pass the data on.
I'm not quite sure why people find this so important, when you're buying a second hand unit the wear & tear will indicate the amount of use a camera has had, but with some cameras having a 300K + activation count there are very few of us who will ever reach that in the life of a body before moving on to a newer model.
