Lexar Tells Me the D700 Cannot Use 16GB CF Cards

Using a brand new 16GB card from Lexar today (Lexar Platinum II 80x), I
came home to find that two of the images were corrupt and could not be

I contacted Lexar, and the company tells me that their database says the
D700 is not compatible with 16GB cards.

Can this be right? Surely the D700 can easily handle 16GB cards, the conservative list of
"approved" cards notwithstanding.

Is it really possible that a nondefective Lexar 16GB card will fail right out
of the box on the D700?
