I had the same problem. I used compressed air to blow out the card and the slot, and it now works.

Using a flashlight, check thru the CF memory card reader if there are some pins that are bent, missing (broken) or damaged.
If this is the case, it is necessary to have serviced the camera to replace such pins, and inspectd for the broken pin pieces that may be stuck inside the camera, and cause later a short circuit.
If all the pins are in good conditions, may be the internal memory reader circuitry is failing, which requires also a professional camera repair service.
If it's under warranty, I do recommend you to send it back to make valid the warranty.
If not, then you have the options of pay for its repair, or do it yourself if you are willing to open it and perform the steps to repair it.
If so, You will need tools to do it, which includes the usage of a soldering iron, microscope (since requires micro soldering), and buy the CF memory card reader connector..

Believe it or not, the camera's internal clock battery is worn down, causing this problem. Unfortunately, it's buried deep inside your camera, and is difficult to replace. But happily Canon will fix this problem for free. Please see this link.

Look inside the card compartment to check for broken or bent pins. Have you tried formatting the card in the camera? This will erase it so download any pictures first using a card reader if necessary.
