Well I was going to say if its a Mad Catz or off brand card, you save yourself some time by throwing it in the trash and going down to the store to buy an offical Nintendo memory card. Problem solved.

The whole "3rd party memory cards are evil" thing is a whole lie...I've had 3rd party cards that never failed me and I have my gamecube 1st party memory card that reformatted itself. Whatever, I don't blame the companies, cards sometimes tend to do tehse things.

Noo you shouldn't have formatted. That happens to my third party one all the time (although I don't use it anymore since I got a Nintendo one). All you have to do is turn the cube/wii off, take the memory card out, blow in it, put it back in and yeah. Works perfectly after that. For me anyway...
