SOURCE: CF Excessive Power
Nikons and Fujis keep the CF slot powered, and "poll" it every now and then to see if a card has been removed or inserted. So yes, a camera may drain batteries much faster with a CF card than it does with an XD. But if it really does do this, then someone at Fuji deserves to be on the street, looking for a new job. Polling a card every few seconds does not have to be a traumatic experience to the camera. A Nikon can sleep for months, and not show appreciable battery drain. After what I've seen in the horribly slow CF write times of the S3, and the large artificial difference in write times between CF and xD on that camera, I'd say someone (or several "someones") at Fuji is doing everything in their power to make CF look bad and steer people into xD.

SOURCE: CF card problem
A slightly similar experience in that a Memory Stick Duo inexplicably set itself to write protect. No matter what I did, I couldn't format it. I was forced to buy another card. If possible, test it with another card or two. If it happens with more than two or three cards, then I would suspect the camera.

If you're runnng a Windows system, you can try an undelete program such as the following:
Usually, when you delete pictures from a flash device, it just sets a tag at the beginning of each file name telling the compact flash file system that the files can be overwrote. The most important thing to do at this point is not take any more pictures or copy any files to the card. Try downloading and installing that program [it's free] and choosing your card as the drive to scan [if you use a card reader this will be easy, if you use a camera, it may not show the camera or card as a device in My Computer].
