The first 1Series cameras did store the shutter count in the Exif - and you can get a program off the net to read the number.
As far as I know, no other canon records the data.
If you want to avoid the file number from the old camera starting in a new camera, you have to format it on a computer. When the camera formats the card, it also stores the last file number the camera used.
When you put the card into a camera, it checks its own internal file number with that stored on the card and uses the highest number.
Flake, I've no idea why you would think formatting a card on a PC to not be a good idea. Though when you put it in the camera its probably a good idea, but only to ensure the format is correct.
