The largest I've seen is a 16GB card when I owned a D200. Also, I'm of the camp that believes in more cards versus larger-capacity cards, to guard against single-point failures. I'd rather use two 8GBs instead of a 16GB.

I've just not had any interest in taking a camera underwater. There are many who specialize in that sort of thing, and they are good at it. In fact, I run the largest cave diving video site in the world (to my knowledge). And I have been in underwater videos and stills. I just have not been the person behind the lens... and don't plan to be.

Yes, given the choice. Sometimes we don't have the choice. I am often dealing with remote cameras. Often they are not accessible during an event. Or even if they are accessible, running around to 6 or 7 cameras would take too long.
You just do the best you can sometimes.
I can remember when a 1GB card was HUGE. The arguments were the same then... all your eggs in one basket. We only had 36 shots on film, why do you need two HUNDRED on a card?! Today's extreme is tomorrow's normal.
You may need to format the card in the camera and see what happens. Using any card not listed as tested by Nikon for the camera or the manufacturer can listed as usable in the camera can be a real throw of the dice as to whether it will work or not. You may also should make sure your firmware is up to date.
SanDisk list the largest card for the D200 at 16GB.
