Can I use 60 MB/s Compact Flash cards in my EOS 40D? I have been using 30 MB/s cards for several years and would like to get faster speed if the $)D will accept the faster cards

It will accept them but it may not transfer any faster. That's limited to the buss used back then which was most likely the fastest it could be in it's day.

That's correct... The camera probably cannot take advantage of the faster cards, won't write any faster due to it's own limitations. Or the difference might be so small you can only measure it in a laboratory.
Depending upon your computer setup and card reader, you might get noticeably faster image downloads.
