delete or format CF cards >512MB

Just got a Nikon D100 this week. Great camera but I think that there is an issue with support for compact flash. I had a Sandisk Ultra 512 and decided to use it on the Nikon. After placing it in the camera and formating it only seems to support 85 shots and gives an error after that (CHA). If i format in a PC then the full 156 images are available. If I delete all rather than format the problem isn't there.

Does this mean that the Nikon D100 only formats up to 256mb max? Anyone else had any similar problems. Are there any updates? I gave up on the Nikon help desk after 20 minutes of holding.

Look forward to any ideas on this
