I have used a Nikon D3300 for years. 

I've acquired a Rokinon HD8M-N 8mm F/3.5 HD, a Samyang ED AS IF UMC  14mm F/2.8 HD and a Tamron SP AF Aspherical XR Di f2.8 28-75mm Macro Lens.

They all work great with my Nikon D3300.

I recently purchased a D3400 and all the lenses when mounted on this camera say that it's Not Compatible.

The D3400 has the very latest Firmware.

Is there anything that can be done so that the lenses can be used on the newer camera, D3400?

That is the risk one takes when buying third-party lenses. Nikon started using some previously not used part of the communications protocol in the D3400 and reverse-engineered third-party lenses need an upgraded chip to work with newer bodies. Check with the distributors if there is an update available and what the cost for updating your lenses would be.
