Below you will find Nikon’s instructions on identifying the cards and getting replacements.
It has been reported that there are a small number of a specific type of Lexar CompactFlash® memory cards that may have a problem communicating with your Nikon D4S DSLR camera. This article describes how to identify the problematic cards and what to do if you have one.
1 – Remove your CF® card from your camera.
2 – Look for the serial number on the edge of your CF® card.
3 – Identify if the last six part numbers (shown highlighted by the yellow X’s) contain 1 of the following 2 sequences :
a – 8BAFBE
b – 8DCB61
4 – If your CF card’s serial number contains 1 of the 2 sequences listed above, you must contact LEXAR support to replace your CF® card.
5 – If your card does not contain either of the 2 sequences, then your card is fully compatible.
