LR3.6 will not recognize an SD card from my Nikon D800 but will recognize a CF card???

You are going to have to be more clear about what you are doing. Where is the media being read from? The camera, or a reader?

I'm using a reader. Can download from a CF card but not from a SD card. I'm using LR 3.6 I get this message -- The file is from a camera that is not recognized by the raw format support in Lightroom. I went to Help>check for updates and am told LR is up to date, no updates available.

I don't know if this is possible for the D800, but did you by any chance configure your D800 so that the SD card records the raw photos and the CF card records JPEG? This could be an explanation because Lightroom 3 cannot read D800 raws (it would also explain the error message you get).

If this is true, you have to upgrade (not update) to Lightroom 4 or use the DNG converter to convert the raws to DNG - which Lightroom 3 is able to read.
