Ok, guys. I need help!

I just got the sb 600 but I can't get the flash to fire wireless. I have read the flash manual, the d90 manual, and a number of rockwell's links.

My current settings on the camera are:

1) Manual mode
2) Commander mode
3) Built-in flash mode (--) * I do not what the built-in flash to fire but what to keep the commander mode on.
4) Group A mode TTL
5) Channel 3

My current setting on the sb 600

1) swiggly "S" "ON"
1) Channel 3
3) Group A

Am I missing something? I read the manual over and over but can't figure out what else I need to do.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi.
I bought the same flash some weeks ago and I gave up on it. I dont understand how it works either, let alone how to fire it wireless (if there is such a possibility) :-(
I have a Nikon D60.

Wow, sorry to hear that.

I actually post this on another forum and some of the pros helped me out.

Basically, I was blocking the light sensor.

It works like a champ now!

I think sb-600 cannot be used as master flash for wireless. Do you mean this function? So you need to have other flash that can be used as master flash and use the sb-600 as a slave flash.
