I record in raw and high quality jpeg. Suddenly, I am finding that occasionally in a shoot (5 out of 40 images), some of my raw and jpeg images have blank or grey areas. Is this a software problem or should I take it in to Canon repair?

When on the image recording quality setting screen, use the main dial to select RAW (go all the way to the - sign on the left to turn off RAW), and use the multicontroller left/right to select JPEG settings. See page 116 in the manual.
When you choose quality L, but with the stairs logo, not the quarter circle, the fame size will be around 3.3 mb on average for the jpg files.
Only when you select RAW or RAW + JPEG you get the big files. (Up to 25 MB + 6 MB)
Everything about the image-recording quality settings can be found on page 61 of the manual.
On my D-90, the camera is set by default to store two images of each picture I shoot...raw(NEF) and JPEG Fine.
The raw image contains far more data than the JPEG image and is therefore the best to use when you want to do extensive detailed editing.
The JPEG image is used when you only want to do minor editing before publishing or sharing the picture.
JPEG images deteriorate quickly when subjected to editing while RAW or NEF images can handle many more editing steps before losing quality.
If you're shooting snapshots, you probably don't really care about extensive editing and you can save a lot of space on your memory card by changing your menu settings to store only one image of each shot.
To do that, go to the wrench icon in the menu then scroll to image quality. Click on "image Quality" and you will find multiple lines to set the camera to your preference. Choose the one you want.
The raw+fine setting indicates that your camera will take both raw (NEF) and high resolution JPEG pictures with every shot. You can change this to shoot just JPEG or just raw shots using your menu under the little camera icon. Click on image quality and it will give you multiple settings so you can choose only raw or only JPEG. You have three JPEG settings: fine, normal or basic.
I always shoot raw+fine which I think may be the default setting. I use the jpeg pictures for simple and quick editing and I use raw for detailed editing. JPEG pictures deteriorate quickly during editing while raw pictures can handle extensive editing without significant deterioration.
When you shoot raw+fine, it means the camera is actually storing two pictures of the same shot, one in each of the two formats. When you view the pictures in Windows, you can tell the difference between the raw shots and the jpeg shots because the raw shots have a broad black bar across the top and bottom of the picture while the jpeg shots fill the screen.
I had the same problem, basically all you need is a RAW converter, the canon software should do and should be provided with the camera and if you havent got that then there is a wide selection of free software on the internet im sure of it just search for it, or a lot easier not to use RAW in the first place...
Best qulity you can get with canon 350d is RAW format, but you cant shoot raw in automatic mode , when you switch camera to manual mode you will see raw option is enabled. if not JPEG (EXIF 2.21) - Fine will capture your images at 8MPX with 3456 x 2304 resolution.
The details for each record mode are as follows:
RAW: RAW data is unprocessed image data in its original state to which white balance, sharpness, contrast, color conversion and other processes have not been applied. CAMEDIA Master can be used to display RAW data and save it in other image formats. A RAW plug-in is also available for Adobe Photoshop which also provides the ability to process images in 32-bit color depth.
TIFF: This is the highest-quality mode. images are saved as uncompressed data, which is the best for printing or image processing on a computer.
SHQ: This is a high quality mode using the JPEG format. Because the compression rate is very low, high quality images can be stored.
HQ: This is a high quality mode using JPEG format, with medium compression. Because the compression rate is higher than SHQ, file sizes are smaller. More images can be saved to a card. The file size can be changed in the 3:2 or Enlarge size mode as well as SHQ.
3:2 Mode: Ordinarily the image aspect ratio is set to 4:3. Due to change the ratio to 3:2, the picture size becomes 2592 x 1728 so that the image can be printed without losing the image borders at a photo lab. 3:2 can be set in the TIFF, SHQ, or HQ mode.
SQ1/SQ2: SQ1 is used for resolutions above 1600 x1200 and SQ2 is used for resolutions below 1600 x1200. For both, you can choose high compression to reduce noise or normal compression to save more images.
