SOURCE: Error message
This is pretty common with the 300D. There is a pin on which the secondary (AF) mirror pivots. It looks like Canon didn't used the right, or enough glue to hold the pin to the mirror box assembly. There are a couple of sites that show sort of how to repair it. I'm working on fixing mine right now, but have some other issues. To do this properly yourself, you will need jewlers screwdrivers, a good soldering iron, tweezers, and some glue (I used super glue).
I chose to do the repair because I've got a degree in electrical engineering, experience with micro-electronics, and have more time than money. I did manage to break the flex circuit that goes to the flash board, which is the source of my woes now.

I think I answered this earlier did you ask this question more tan once?
well here you are a simple fix from experience.
The guy at Canon tech support listened to my woes and then told me that the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them. Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.
I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and behold, it worked (so far anyway). I’ve shot numerous pictures with each lens and have not gotten a single error 99 message.

The above link describes the following:
The LCD screen may display a FILE ERROR message when trying to view a still image on the camera if the image was rotated, modified and overwritten using editing software on a computer. To play images you have taken on the camera, it is recommended that you do not make any changes to the original image files.
Another problem may be that the Memory Stick Pro/Duo or Memory Stick Pro used in the camera has dirty contacts, causing this error.
Or, the memory stick pro/duo is damaged somehow.
Remove and blow out the memory chamber with compressed air, and remove from any adapters and clean with compressed air and then reinsert fully into the chamber for the Memory Stick on the camera.
