    any idea why its not working? I've tried a few other flashes on my friends XSI, including 2 of my Nikon flashes... but for some reason, I cannot get the sunpak pf30x to work... everything I've read said it should work fine.. but it wont fire.. it works fine on my nikons, and it works when I hit the test button.. but it wont work when I use the canon, and I also tried it on a wired hotshoe, wouldnt work onthe canon..

    any help would be appreciated...

    Have you checked to make sure that the company don't release specific models for different camera brands? It might be that you have a nikon version and it does not have the firmwire to understand canon?

    I do know that sunpack have a service for updating firmwire and it might be worth contacting them as they might be able to (after you mail them the flash) reinstall the firmwire for you
