I have a Metz Mecablitz 50 MZ5 which incorporates an automatic exposure calculation unit which mounts on top of the camera. I normally use this unit successfully on a medium format and 35mm camera which are full manual. Even with the correct aperture, film speed, lens zoom settings inputted into the unit the exposure is wrong with the Epson. The firmware inside the camera doesn't work in a linear fashion as conventional film so reciprocal calculations cannot be conducted ie: 1/60 f8 = 1/120 f6. There are look-up tables inside the camera that calculate the exposure in an Epson Digital Camera kind of way. Epson UK are currently investigating the actual values used and how the camera calculates them so I can compensate when using the flash. My advice to you would be not to buy a sophisticated flash for this camera. No information is passed to the flash which acts as nothing but a slave to the camera. Even with a guide no of 50 in my flash unit the pictures are always underexposed and the correct exposure is difficult to work out without knowing how it works in the camera.

Due to the age of the camera, the Ultra 2 CF card may be using a different architecture than your other CF cards. In other words, the card is incompatible with the camera.
One other problem may be that the camera is not designed to recognize a card which is of a larger capacity.
As I cannot find the 300D on Canon's site it is difficult to find exact specifications as to the abilities of the camera, as to what type of CF card it will accept, what the largest capacity it will accept, etc.
A more fixable problem would be either that the card is not formatted properly - which may be possible through the camera itself. Please try to navigate the camera's menu to find a format option. If not, you can insert it into a CF card reader and attempt formatting it that way. Please see Here for formatting through a camera.
Also, try Here for yet another possible explanation of your problem, as #6.
If the camera is meant to take the capacity and type of CF card, and is not damaged, the only other explanation is that it is write-protected. As I do not know the exact features of your CF card, I cannot say whether or not it has a manual write-protection switch. If it does, it would be a small sliding piece of plastic or metal on the side of the card which toggles the write-protection feature. It may also be write-protected as a file system, in which case you will need to format it.
If the card refuses to format due to a write-protection, you will need to remove the write-protection from the card first and then format it.
The following picture shows a CF card with a write-protection switch on the left hand side.
If this proved helpful, please rate. If you need further assistance, please come back and I will attempt to provide further help.
Thank you and take care,

i checked specs on that camera and the maximum memory card you can use is 512mb. if you get one that size you should have no errors anymore

The camera uses FAT16 so it won't be able to use cards bigger than 2GB. IF you can format it, you will only have 2GB space available.
Formatting the card: Press Menu/OK, select Setup, Select Format, press OK untill it's done.
