Try this?

according to page 140 of my manual fully automatic shooting with one external speedlite..

1) popup flash

2) select "flash control" in menu

3) select "built in flash" function setting

4) select flash mode - select ETTL and press "set" button

5) select wireless func - select the option that shows just the speed light picture and press "set" button

6) set channel and make sure your speedlite is in slave mode on the same

channel

7) set "firing group" to All

should now fire external speedlight while the built in is popped up but not fire the built in.

Yes, you need to go into the camera 's built-in flash menu and select "Wireless function" "enabled".

Then you must also take the 430EX II and set it to "slave". I don't think this can be done using the camera's external flash menu.(please correct me if I am wrong) I am pretty sure you must take the flash in your hand and set it to "slave" as per page 26 of the 430EX II manual.

yes, that's true, I meant that you can control the flash from the camera. you do have to set it as slave.

The external flash menu controls an external flash mounted in the camera's hotshoe.
Slave flashes are controlled by the camera's internal flash, so it's the menu item controlling the internal flash you should use.
