Was given this without an instruction manual, and I can't find a free one on line. I just need to get it to load the film, but every time I insert the film and take it to the point it says to take it, I keep getting an Error message and the film won't load. Any ideas? Thanks!one

The 550 FD came out before digitals. It is fully dedicated(FD) to a type of film camera. Usually this is noted on the back of the flash. CA or C for Canon, MI or MX for Minolta, Ne or NI for Nikon. If its the Nikon dedicated unit, it should not harm your camera, and will most likely work...as a manual flash. You will lose all the neat flash stuff that the D5000 can do. I suggest you watch Ebay for a Sunpak PZ-30, PZ-40, or a Sigma 430 or 500. The Sigma EF 500 Super will do pretty much everything the top of the line Nikon Flash does, but you can buy it new for half the price of the Nikon unit. All flashes today are dedicated to a certain group of cameras by a certain manufacturer. For example: Canon EOS film cameras or Minolta manual focus cameras. I suggest you get rid of the 550FD as it is designed for the pre-Autofocus cameras. Avoid the Sunpak Auto 30DX, the 333, 383, 433, 444 and the PZ 4000/5000 as well as the MZ flashes. These were not designed for your new digital. Metz also makes some very nice flashes, but they're kinda pricey.
