D700 and 64GB CF Cards ...

I bought a mint D700 a couple of months ago (15K clicks) and used it on a recent holiday.

I used a Sandisk 64GB card.   One evening, with about 400 shots already on the card it suddenly would only show me 2 !!! on playback.    I took the card out.  Put it in my laptop and used a Sandisk recovery program.   It recovered about 380 shots.

The big thing is this ... the card is now toast.   I cannot reformat it it in my laptop or the D700 or my D810 (where I had previously been using it).

Has anyone else had a problem like this ?.  I wonder if it is a technology mis-match and I should be using smaller cards.

Any thoughts.  Thanks.

BTW.   It is heavy and clunky ... but I really like the D700.
