The flash will provide all the automatic features with the Sony dSLR. With other SLRs, digital or film, you'll have to use it in manual mode.

Can I use the Sunpak auto 221d dedicated for minolta on a canon dslr?


No. The flash's trigger voltage is much too high. You could use something like this to isolate the units, however you won't get any of the automatic functions.

Can I use my old auto thyristor 550FD on my new Nikon D90 DSLR


No. The high trigger voltage in your old unit will damage your D90 for certain.

You need to get a newer flash (US=strobe) designed for digital cameras but don't have to stick to Nikon's overpriced offerings. Metz are excellent and have a high resale value as you can change the dedication model to suit different manufacturers.

Vivitar 3200 Flashgun and Canon EOS 400D


Using Vivitar 3200A flash gun on a DSLR is risky for the following reason. The trigger voltage of a DSLR at flash hot shoe that takes it to its TTL (through the lens) circuit is less than 10 volts, it is about 6 to 8 volts in the recent DSLRs. The trigger voltage generated by Vivitar 3200A at full charge flashing is around 180 volts (max). That is a fatal dose for a sensitive DSLR TTL circuit. This high voltage flash gun will work endlessly, the only damage is to the TTL flash circuit. When you attach a TTL flash to the DSLR after using Vivitar 3200A for sometime, your TTL flash will not communicate with your camera. It will be just another ordinary flash without any auto functions. There is a Wein adapter that you can fix b/w your cameral hot shoe and the vivitar flash gun that is said to reduce the trigger voltage that passes into the camera. Try it if you get it. Without this gadget it is better not to use non recommended and non TTL flashes on latest DSLRs.
