This might help...
Best of all it's free. I'm recommending it because I've used it before successfully, many times. Let me know how it goes.

Thanks, Shadowsports. Before getting your reply, I sent an email to the CF card company (Transcend). They got back to me right away and recommended I run a trial version of EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac. Thankfully, it found my raw files!
While I would have preferred to retrieve my missing 300+ raw files for free, it was the best $90 investment I could have imagined. It's just not the same trying to edit JPGs of headshots via Lightroom.
I also get to send the CF card back to Transcend for a new one as these are guaranteed for life.

$90 is a small price to pay as you said. EaseUS is a great software developer known primarily for their partition management software. Over the years they have expanded into the back up, data recovery and file utility space. Very happy you got your raw files back.

We recommend downloading both media cards with a USB card reader. Once you've cleared both cards of all photos you will want to format the card in the camera to see if this issue persists.

Good idea. I typically download all data by putting my media cards into a card reader. Unfortunately, the CF card was not being seen via the card reader (to be more specific, it's a firewire card reader). I rarely download the content on the SD card as it is typically a "just-in-case I need it" card.
I have another shoot tomorrow. I'm going to switch the order (raw files to the SD card, JPGs to the CF) as the SD card seems to be a little faster and more reliable.
