Default My D800 arrived, first problem CF card error

My D800 did arrive today and I did use my Patriot 32Gb card from my ex E-3 camera. Direct error result.
After some surfing I see now that only a few brands are working.
I wanted to ask if anyone here would know a way to make it work.
I'm trying now to format the card under ex fat full format on PC but it need a while till finally been formated.

considering the relatively cheap prices of memory cards I think id be tempted to just buy a new card based on recommendations from other D800 users, nothing worse than taking hundreds of photos only to get a card error when you try to upload them

relative cheap.... A compact flash card is still not that cheap.
I did place the 32Gb in my E-500 and it works there, the card that was in the E-500, a 8Gb Transcend, is working in the D800.
I will now see to buy two Transcend, Lexar or Sandisk cards for my d800.
