    I'm not sure to be honest as i've never dealt with flash. You'd probably get a better response posting in the "Beyond the Basics" section or something along those lines.

    Hope you get it working.

    most slaves have a setting to switch it from normal mode over to optical, be sure you changed that setting. im not sure about your model. i would read the manual.
