I apologize for not putting OT. But also, I don't have the replacement
module for the CF card. This is (or was) a fairly pricy dslr.  I've looked
around online trying to find the module, but keep getting stupid google
results for USB Multi-card CF readers. I did find one place that will do
the repair for $100, and I read some good reviews about the place. Better
than the almost $300 Canon wants for the repair.  At one time I (about
6-months ago) I had tracked down the module, and it was like a $40
component, so for $60 labor and the knowledge that they'll be able to get
the parts, I'm thinking that may be the best way to go.

Normal Person: Hey, it seems that you know a lot.
Geek: To be honest, it's due to all the surfing I do.
