D800 and Lexar 800x cards

->> I got some Lexar Pro 800x CF 8- and 16-gig cards and am having trouble with them. Would like to know if others are experiencing the same.

The 16-gig cards are recording 40-meg RAW files sometimes as low as 465k and other files are corrupted. And some test shots on an 8-gig card caused my Win7 laptop to do a blue death screen memory dump when I tried to open the folder to copy from it. I used both Lexar's ExpressCard and Dual-Slot readers with same problems. I also tried accessing one on my daughter's Mac and it didn't work on that platform either.

The difference between these cards and others from different manufacturers that work just fine is that the Lexars are UDMA-7 while the others are UDMA-10.

->> I know this much: there is no such thing as UDMA-10. 7 is as high as it (currently) goes.

Lexar's 800x card isn't listed on their approved cards list - curiously, just about every other Lexar is:

I found the Nikon list of approved cards after I posted. It was updated last July. I'm calling Nikon support later this morning to see what they say. Thx

->> I've owned many Sandisk cards, and just a few Lexars.

Every Lexar I have owned had issues at least once. My Sandisks have never had any issue at all.

Lexar was always quick to replace them, but they've lost me as a customer.
