Try formatting the CF card in your computer and if it can be done successfully, return to the camera and try to format it in the camera. If not, then the card is bad or it is too large for the camera to read. Some older cameras have limits to the sizes of cards they can read.
This is an old posting but I'd like to comment that once the memory card is used in a computer it won't read in the camera again until you format the memory card. Make sure you have all your pictures on the computer before formatting the memory card. A memory card must be formatted in the camera it is going to be used in.
If trying another card doesn't work then reformat your CF card in your computer choosing a Quick Format option. Then place it in the camera, do an immediate card format in the camera. If you've got images on the card now DO NOT SHOOT ANYTHING on the card before running an image recovery program like Sandisk RescuePro. As long as you don't shoot anything new on the card RescurPro should recovery all the existing images.

Formatting a CF Card
You should always format a new CF card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data.
Please note that formatting a CF card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. Please check the contents of the CF card before formatting it.
Turn the power on.
Press the <MENU> button and select [ (Set up)] using or .
Select (Format) using or and press the <SET> button.
Select [OK] using or and press the <SET> button.
To cancel formatting instead, select [Cancel] and press the <SET> button.
The capacity of the CF card displayed after formatting will be less than the rated capacity of the CF card. This is not a malfunction of the CF card or camera.
Press the <MENU> button.
If the camera does not work properly, the inserted CF card may be malfunctioning. Reformatting the CF card may solve the problem.
When a non-Canon brand CF card is malfunctioning, reformatting it may solve the problem.
CF cards formatted in another camera, computer or peripheral device may not operate correctly. When that happens, reformat the CF card with this camera.
So far as I am aware, the 5400 will support only up to 2GB cards. As to the firmware upgrade you mention, I don't recall that that has any bearing on the max. card capacity; but it's worth doing for the RAW format support (for me, at least). Cheers and good shooting. Davo, Tas.
Perform the following procedures if your camera does not detect a CF card.
1. Restart your camera.
- Set the camera's power switch to and remove the batteries.
- Open the CF card slot cover to make sure the CF card is securely set in the card slot.
- Insert the batteries and turn the power switch .
2. Format a CF card.
Format the CF card with your camera.
Refer to the Camera User Guide supplied with your camera for instructions on formatting your card.
3. Check if your camera detects other CF cards (If you own multiple CF cards.)
If your camera does not detect a CF card after performing the procedures 1 and 2 above, the card that wasn't detected may have a defect.
The "E30" error code is displayed when reading/writing data on a CF card has failed.
Especially, the error code "E30" may appears when you tried to remove a CF card while the camera was processing data.
To clear the "E30" error, try performing the following procedure.
1. Try using another CF card.
If you have another CF card, try loading it in the camera.
If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera.
2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors.
Use ScanDisk to check the CF card for card error or card failure.
Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions.
(If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.)
Be sure to back up the data on the CF card on the computer before you check the CF card.
If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card.
Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem.
3. Format the CF card with your camera
Try to format the CF card with your camera.
Please refer to the "Camera User Guide" for your camera for instructions on formatting CF cards. Also, please note that formatting a CF card will erase all data on the card.
