There is an incompatibility (confirmed by Lexar) between certain Lexar 400x and 1000x CF cards and the D4s. I discovered it when I tried to format my four 1000x 16 gb CF cards in my D4s the day I received it from Roberts Camera. The camera would not recognize or format the any of the CF cards. It would format all of my Sony 16 gb cards successfully. However, if I inserted one of my Lexar cards with an XQD card already in place, the camera would not recognize either card.

Two online chats with Lexar (with lots of troubleshooting) didn't help. Finally, last Monday Lexar posted a notice on their support site confirming the problem and identifying the suspect cards by serial number. See http://www.lexar.com/files/support/Lexar-CF-400x-1000x-firmware.pdf for the details.

To their credit Lexar is replacing these card free of charge. I sent mine in last week for replacement.
