The V4 comes shipped with 128 GB IDE Flashdrive.
You can change this for a bigger CF flash Drive if you like.

Regarding max size of SDcard, honestly I not know.

I assume the "cheap" adapter that you use creates you the problems.
The adapter you mention is known to have limits, problems/issues.
On the box of the "extreme cf adapter" it reads:
    Support capacity: 8MB ~ 128GB
If this is correct then what you try is not supported by this adapter.
 
I would not recommend you to use this cheap adapter with 500 Euro worth of SDcard as you want to.
Please contact us on our official support channel and we can give you advice.
   
Can you please help me understand why you post this here and not on our support discord channel where every customer got access to.

Which filesystem are you using?
 
Are you aware that AMIGA filesystem like AMIGA FFS support a maximum partitions size 127 GB  ?
Amiga PFS supports maximum 100 GB partition size.
Amiga SFS supports maximum 127 GB partition size.
 

Please understand that you need to split bigger drives in several partitions. If you not do this, then this can not work under Amiga OS.
 

Btw: You did not answer my question, were you not invited to the discord channel?

Hi,
 
  Do these work on the Vampire IDE slot and are they recommended or needed?
 
  Will be connecting a CF Card and a sata dvd burner (via two adapters).
 
  Thanks

Why dont you just mount a SD card extender in the CDrom Slot? I dont understand the amount of CD-Rom fanatics I see on here and on discord when we have a ultra fast, ultra convinient SDCard slot to transfer data!

Did you set MAX transfer size correctly?
