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.

What is the largest size compact flash card can a dc290 use

I am using a 2GB TopRam Compact Flash memory card right now, and I haven't had a problem. With the DC290 in UltraMode, it's estimating that approximately 1900+ photos will fill the card.

Will by Nikon Coolpix 5700 support a 4 GB compact flash card ??? thanks

Your camera uses CF type I or II cards. Since it was first introduced in 2002 I believe it has no support for 4GB cards. But since it's a 5MB camera, you can get some 500 frames on one 2GB card. Just need to pack some more of those for a photo-safari.

Does "memory card full" mean you have to purchase another for canon powershot sd750 or can you erase?

You can either erase the pictures or transfer them to a computer using the supplied USB cable or remove the flash memory and insert directly into the computer's sd card port.

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.

It is not a good idea to manipulate files on the card just to save the transfer time. Flash cards can only be written a limited (though large) number of times. Because you can't delete a file without writing to the card, it is more prudent to copy all files from the card, then erase all of them at once.

Blue screen

You should check the settings to see which type of memory card you are using, xD versus Compact Flash. The default xD card that the camera comes with is very small and may not support saving the size of image you're trying to capture. If you are using a card with enough memory the card itself might be defective..
