Hi guys, It's been a while since I've even tried to use ETTL and HSS and I can't seem to find or to get either one activated. Am I missing something or is it not working right? I normally only shot using it in Auto or manual, but I would like to play with it in the other 2 modes. The instructions for it don't elaborate enough for me to get it. So if you have one or can help it would be appreciated.

Do you have the Metz 3102 M3 module, for use with the 350/20D/30D ETTL?

Press Mode until 'TTL' flashes on the display, then turn the selection dial to choose the submode 'HSS'

Wilt, Yes I have the 3102 module and I read that about turning the dial and when I do all I get is the 2 options for ad 1 and ad 2 for firing other flashes. Strange. I know I've seen it a long time ago it just doesn't want to show either right now.
Also thanks for the link but I have the manuals.

Also Wilt or anyone, do you or have you ever attached a PC sync cord to yours? and what kind did you use? on the side of my flash there are 2 holes with what appears to be pins in there.

Is the flash mounted on the camera, and both turned on at the time you are trying to set things? I believe that certain suboptions are presented only when the flash has communication with the appropriate camera body (e.g. Canon options presented with Canon bodies only, Minolta options only with Minolta bodies, etc.)

I never tried for a PC cord connection, since I have the shoe extension cable
