I would like to know if you know any method and/or device that allows to transfer (wired or wireless) the photos from CF directly to a laptop or mobile hard disk, keeping the CF in the D300.
Your help will be welcome.

Have you looked at pages 224 -299 of the D300 User Guide?
They describe how to directly connect the camera to a computer and what Nikon software can be used.
Also most photo editing programs provide some method for transferring images.
In your camera you must set the type of USB connection, MTP/PTP will have your camera appear as a camera/scanner device, while 'mass storage' will have you CF card appear as a removable disk drive.
For wireless transfer you will need to purchase a WT-4 device.
Please note that you have appreciable battery drain while your camera is connected to the computer.
Many prefer to use a card reader and use Windows Explorer or Mac's Finder to transfer their images for processing. The reasons include camera battery life, more control over where the images are being transferred to, preventing the accidental reformatting of the media card or deletion of images after the transfer is complete. Also the USB ports on the camera may not be the most robust and using a card reader cuts down on the wear and tear on the camera's USB port. And with a second card you can continue to shoot while you are transferring images.
The Epson P6000/7000 can read the cards directly or be connected to the camera and browse the CF card and transfer images. Also with the right firmware installed they can even control the camera's shutter.
