There are two FATs on every storage medium (that uses some variation of the File Allocation Table system.) The File Allocation Tables must be in certain specific places within the volume, and no memory location within any part of either FAT can be remapped around failed memory locations. Some cameras can work with flash memory devices where one of the FATs has failed but hte other is ok, and others can't. It's possible that one of the two FATs on that card has failed, and the Canon can handle it but the Panasonic can't.

It's also possible that the Panasonic just won't work with a 4GB SD card that isn't an SDHC card.
