The card that can be formatted is made by SanDisk, the ones that refuse to be formatted are made by PNY. The SanDisk is an "Ultra", while the PNY cards are "Premiums".
Actually, the tip referred specifically to problems formatting PNY StoreEdge SD Cards. Some (or perhaps all) are being shipped formatted Ex-FAT and then can't be reformatted OS X Extended without booting from an install disk first.
Found tip in Amazon comments.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
