Quantum turbo and 580EX11

I disabled custom function 1 and 12 in the flash. the battery shows that it is powering the flash, but the flash does not seem to be powered by theQuantum turbo compact external battery. Do I have to change the mode ETTL in the camera to multi or Manual? If I turn off the external battery I am giving the same recycle time. I think the problem is with the flash. Please help. Big wedding shoot tomorrow, was hoping to use the new external battery to follow my flash

    I am not sure I understand. I have disabled custom function 1 and 12. I have checked the cord that connects the battery to the flash and that works and the hot she flash. They all work. The battery works and the flash as well. I am just not getting the quick recycle time that I am suppose to get.

I have a Quantum Turbo Batter and there is a

Solid arrow -> normal operation. Dashed arrow -> faster cycle, less time to achieve readiness of the flash but, on the other hand, lower number of flashes.

D300, SB-800 fires but no exposure.

Thats is odd.
When you hook everything up, do you turn on the flash last?
It sounds like the battery pack is giving the flash a different voltage then it should have causing incorrect readings and exposures.
I would send the pack back to Quantum(located in Ronkonkoma, NY) and have them check it.
