Answers :

It seems that the CF reader mechanical assembly part has loose or out of place an internal part.
\015\012
\015\012It may be caused by excessive force in pushing/pulling a CF memory card, or due to a manufacturing issueof the camera.
\015\012
\015\012The solution is to open the camera, and check what is causing the problem and fix it.
\015\012
\015\012If it's under warranty, I do recommend you to return it. If not, then you will need to pay for its repair, or do it yourself if you have experience, skills and patience in fixing electronic devices.
\015\012
\015\012Such repair will require some philips screwdrivers, a soldering iron, soldering wire, and a st of tweezers.
\015\012
\015\012There are in internet some guides to open and disassembly Canon XT 350D or Rebel 300d cameras. The disassembly process with the XTi 400D is very similar. You can Google fr such guidelines.
