Prices have really come down so a good quality 16gig CF is about the smallest you could use effectively without being highly constrained by lack of storage space. Set your compression to 14 bit lossless compressed to shrink RAW files down to about 42mb each. Natively, uncompressed are 72+mb/image.
Regarding the failure to play back......can you see the embedded jpg of the raw image that camera saves? Or does the it hot show any image on the rear display? I am sure the card is not on the tested and approved list published in the manual by Nikon but I've used a number if newer off brand cards with good success. Being able to format in-camera without errors indicates the cards are addressing correctly, where old microdrive CF would not.
Try another card from the approved list and if the problem still persists maybe your local pro camera store can help you figure it out...one of the best reasons to support local stores in major purchases.
