Black images on CF card

\015 My 10d had worked perfectly for 4 years. Just yesterday as I was shooting a family, it quit recording images on the CF card. They display as completely \302\240black and are black boxes when I load to aperture.\302\240\015\012It sounds like the picture is being taken, as always, but then nothing.\302\240\015\012I re-formatted all my cards, put in a new batter, cleaned it but to no avail.\302\240\015\012Has anyone had this problem and can you tell me a possible solution?\015
