Canon Rebel xt does not accept CF cards for no apparent reason

\015 My Canon did work fine for 2 years (no waranty left) I maded several thousands photos. It stopped working after few weeks of not using the camera. When I turned it on again, my Canon Rebel XT showed an error "Err CF" and stopped accepting CF cards that I used just few weeks ago. No pins are bent,. I have four cards of various sizes. None of them works, all cards are good on computer. There was no "accidents" with this camera, On the computer I can read and write on all cards and I still have the images from that Canon on the cards (so it is not formating issue). I can not reformat them on Canon (error 99) I can reformat them on computer. I tried new card from store... same problem. Can anybopdy help me? Please\015

My canon EOS 100D digital SLR is saying 'card write protected' when ever I turn it on. It just started to appear on my screen for no apparent reason one day and it won't let me take pictures anymore. It's not the card it's the camera, I have tried sliding the switch on the side of the memory card and even tried new cards in my camera but it happens with every card I insert. I have googled the problem and can't find any solution to fix the problem. Would be very grateful if you could help at all

I have a canon powershot sx200 IS and I recently went on vacation and took a lot of pictures using teh SD memory card provided with the camera.
