The camera is not re-formatting the SD card/s in the way I am used to (Set up menu / Format memory card / Slot 1 / Images will be deleted, Yes) the images are still on the card. Any advice?

Have you got a card in slot 2 that it's reading the photos from?

Try formatting with the 2 red buttons, with only one card in the camera in slot 1.

Press the two red buttons, when the top lcd plate flashes "For" release buttons and then press them again. I don't use or have a D610 but beleive this process is the same on all Nikon DSLRs.
A camera is just a box, any image produced with it emanates from the eye and mind of it's opperator.

I've just had this issue with a Transcend CF card with a Canon 5d3. Spent ages on the phone to Transcend and they eventually gave up and told me to send it back. Not much help to you though, sorry :-(

I use a D600 which is virtually the same. I always reformat cards via my computer, which never fails. Put the card in your reader find it in my computer on PC or it will appear on desktop if like me you use a Mac. Click on card icon and you will see a folder called DCIM, double click on that which will then show another folder, probably called 100ND610 or something similar, double click on that and you will see all your images, select all or whichever images you wish to delete, hit the delete key, once all unwanted images have gone, eject the card and pop it back in your camera. (Remember to empty your recycle bin of the unwanted images)

There are good reasons not to do this in so much that each Camera manufacturer may have its own slightly different interpretation of filing systems when formatting the cards.

Formatting in a PC also has the potential to add other files to the card (eg. some catalogueing software & virus killers leave check files in directories) which could impair the camera's ability to use the card properly.
