I have the sony camara DSLT A300 evreytime i take more than 2 pictures it tells me card is full

You didn't tell us how much memory you have installed. At 10 megapixels, even a 2GB card will hold fewer than 20 full-resolution photos. Installing the maximum Compact Flash memory of 8GB would seem mandatory to me unless you want to voluntarily limit the resolution at a point lower than the 10MP native resolution.

Flash drive says its full but it is new, never used

If it is brand new, you have nothing to loose: reformat the whole card using FAT32 if possible.

Z3 will not accept a 2g card

The Dimage Z3 accept SD cards up to 1GB (Minolta says 512 Mb, and sold it with 16Mb). This camera is 4MP , and uses less memory on card, therefore a 512MB card will be enough for it.
