Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
I need to find an extra cover for the battery so I can store it. It's just a piece of plastic, but I think it's important to have it! It's actually the original (first) Canon Rebel. Still works great.

The first thing to check is that the card door and battery door are firmly closed - press on them while the camera is on to see if it powers up. If not, there's probably a blown fuse - it will have to go to the shop.

SOURCE: Can lenses be swapped ?
The FT lens mount system (FL system) is not the same lens mount used on today's Canon EOS cameras (EF lens mount). The FT/FL system was used for a very short time in the 1960s, and was replaced by the FD lens mount system. Canon switched to the EOS/EF system in the late 1980s/early 1990s. So the lens will not fit on a Digital Rebel, and because it's 2 generations away from the lenses that do fit I don't think there was ever an adaptor made. Sorry!

The lens itself won't corrupt your data. A bad lens would be unable to focus or be unable to communicate with the camera about focal lengths, aperture etc.
It is more likely the camera itself is starting to fail. The consumer Canons are only designed for around 100,000 photos - how many has yours taken? The 300D is quite old now, so will be starting to show its age.
How may CF cards do you have? If you a few, try them in turn, formatting each on the camera and seeing if you still get the errors. If you have another lens, try that also just to put your mind at rest. If all cards fail, the CF card interface of the camera could be failing. If you only have one CF card, get another (or two!!) and if it works OK, throw the old one away.
One extra piece of info: I had a 300D but upgraded to a 350D as the 300D has a nobbled CF interface making it about 6x slower. No point buying UltraII or UltraIII cards for the 300D as it just can't use them as intended. You really notice the speed increase moving to a 350D, but have to get used to the much smaller body size.

Try changing the "communication" setting on the camera from "PC Computer" to "PTP"
Menu > Tools2 (wrench/hammer/2) Communication = Print/PTP
Then connect your camera to your PC. You might trick your PC into opening the transfer application.
