D800 and CF vs SDHC Number of Shots

My setup is Overflow NEF with a 32GB CF Primary and 32GB SDHC. 14bit lossless compression.

I noticed that the actual number of shots taken on the CF card was approx 780 then it flipped over to the SDHC card which showed about 480 shots remaining.

There's probably a simple explanation but for now I don't understand why the SD card would indicate such a huge drop in shot capacity.

Has anyone else noticed this or can anyone explain?

Thx

Nikon D800
