Anybody here using 128GB CF card with D3s?

I tried the Transcend brand 128GB and 64GB CF cards on my D3s and I am having delays on image playback. When I push the play button it takes 7 to 10 seconds for the image to show up on the LCD. In comparison, using a 16GB card the playback is instant.

I do not know if this delay occurs even with Sandisk and Lexar brand 128GB CF cards. Anyone have experience with these?

Big cards is going to take long time due to FAT32 file system employed, this file system is really not suitable for large partition, even my 32GB /60MB/s Sandisk CF takes longer than the 16GB version.  By the way last time I used a Transcend card was 10 years ago.
