D800 CF card error

I bought today a new D800. When I put a CF card in, it displayed Err, Card Err.

The card was a Sandisk Extreme 4, 4GB. Got home and tried all the CFs I have,

all Sandisks from the old extreme II to newer Extreme pro. The same.

Then I tried format the cards in PC/wipe the card/do full PC format etc. nothing.

Then, I did the firmware update to newer D800 f/w, nothing.

The cards do not format in camera, even if it says 'For'.

Green buttons reset, nothing.

Note that the SD slot works fine. All the CFs work fine in  my other Nikons.

Any idea before calling service? I'm a bit angry because the camera is new and seems to

have this problem from factory. I wonder didn't they try to put a card in, before they

release the camera?
