    The beginners forum might not be the best place for this question. ;)

    What voltage will the XSi see?

    Older flash gear has been known to smoke digital cameras.

    Use a good voltage meter to see what the voltage is on the sync port of the strobe if it under the rated voltage of the body you are good to go.

    I use old flash unit also but use wizards not a cord.
