Lexar 1066x CF w/ D800/E issue

Hi guys,

I'm wondering if anyone else has had issues with Lexar CF 1066x 64GB CF cards?

I've been looking for ways to improve the writing performance of my D800 and D800E since purchasing them at release in 2012 and faster cards do make a difference, however, I've bought 2 x 1066x Lexar 64GB CF cards and they don't function in either camera

Lexar and Camera Clinic (a Nikon approved repair shop) say they do, Nikon (Australia) say they don't.  I can't find any info as to why.

I'm hoping someone else has had this issue and there is a solution?
These two cards are almost $1,000 value and if I can't use them I'll probably have to sell them, most likely at a significant loss.

Nikon Australia have confirmed that I'd be able to use the cards in a D810, however I probably will not upgrade until the D810 replacement.
