Yes, you can use the SB50DX on the D5100, however not in the TTL modes. It will only work in the manual or rear-curtain sync modes. For more information, look on page 204 of your camera's manual. You can download it for free at this link: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17325
It is not possible to use the Nikon SB-50DX directly on a Canon EOS Rebel camera. The Nikon flash gun hot shoe contacts do not match the Canon hot shoe contacts. You can use the Nikon as a slave flash gun with a PC flash cord that matches the Nikon's flash contacts then connect the end of this flash cord to a flash trigger. The Canon's flash can then trigger the Nikon flash gun via the flash trigger.
If the shoe of the flash is compatible with the hot shoe of the camera then yes go for it. Should the flash shoe be different then the flash will still work but with a shoe adapter. Both are TTL so I see no reasons why they won't work. I do know of a friend who uses the Nikon with the same flash but it has the battery pack fitting and uses an adapter on the camera's hot shoe. He does weddings galore and never had a problem even though he carries a spare he has never used it.
Try to trigger it by shorting Center of shoe mount and the side terminal with a small wire.If it is firing the flash is ok. If not there is open connection in the sync jack ,due to repeated inserting of sync chord.The springy part inside is not going back to its normal position. You can fix it your self by opening it(adapter only) .If you are new to this take a photo of the wiring immediately after opening the shoe adapter to see the position if any wire breaks later on. Do not give up .383 is great flash
It could be a communication error between the flash and the camera. Check the shoe foot for any damage or stuck pins. All of them must make proper contact with the hot shoe on the camera to get full auto/TTL, same for the shoe of the camera, bent? dirty contacts?
