what about wear and tear on the camera's CF port pins? Both methods equally likely to cause wear and tear if you ask me. Just be more carefull next time would be my (unhelpful) advice to the OP!

And I never turn my dSLRs off (on the basis that they're never actually switched 'off' even when the switch is turned to off). What wear and tear are you specifically talking about when doing a transfer?

My first suggestions is two-fold.... send it to Canon and get it fixed....and never use the USB port for routine file transfer unless you are tethering. The repeated connection and reconnection will eventually cause you to have to get it fixed the wear and tear of having to have the camera powered on during the transfer. I use many cards for an event. Only had one card failure on a new card and fortunately was shooting a 1DmkIII dual card body.
