CF cards not working in my D4

Hi there,

As anyone got a clue whats going on I Bought my D4 at Xmas, I had no problems taking photos- until I visited Yellowstone at the end of january 2014.

To explain I was using the XQD as my main storage media and my compact flash card as a overflow.

it was`nt until my XQD card was full- this resulted in my CF card recording one image then displaying an ERR on the display- every other CF card I had with me showed the same message when inserted.

Err " this CF card cannot be used card may be damaged insert another card"

the 4 CF cards where all SanDisk 16Mb. 2x extreme III 30MB/s 1x extreme pro 90MB/s

& 1x extreme 60MB/s.

I was on a photography workshop and tried my CF in other peoples Nikons all worked fine, other peoples CF cards would not work in my D4.
