Canon 40d wont format my CF cards - cannot take any photo while i am in sudan arrrg


My canon 40d won't format my CF cards.
all card i put into it i get a "CF err" - this card was not formatted with this camera, and when i try to format the card i get - Unable to format Card

One card has phote on it that i took using the 40D

so far i have tried -

2 seperate cards,
1 friend card
1 new card
Attached camera to pc, but cannot see content of CF card.
Attached card to a mem reader and can see the .cr2 files

the camera was put through a few x-ray machines in the airport on my way to sudan, Any ideas.

I am in sudan at the moment and I am missing some great oppertunities for shoots.

Can i flash the camera and reload the software???
