Canon 5D writing corrupt .CR2 files

Hello:

I'm having a bit of a problem here...just shot a big wedding so this is a bit alarming to me. I used both Canon 5D and 20D and switched the CF cards between the cameras in the middle of the wedding to adjust for space limitations (camera's we're shut down to make the switch). 90% of the files shot with the 5D cannot be opened by Lightroom or Photoshop Bridge and appear corrupted. All files from 20D are good. I used 2 different CF cards - Lexar 8GB Pro 300x and Sandisk Extreme 8GB IV. The problem appears to be with the Camera as far as I understand it since all 20D files are okay on both cards and most 5D files are bad on both cards.

Does anyone have suggestions? I'm going to call Canon in the morning but maybe someone has a better idea how to deal with these files. All the info seems to be there just can not be opened.

Thanks in advance.

Michael
