Every other image I take is too dark - even though the auto flash fires each time (and the camera is in AUTO mode). These are indoor, normal light pictures, and it happens both day and night. I've tried waiting long gaps between shots (to let the flash fully charge), but it makes no difference. The flash seems to go every time, but every alternate image remains dim. Any ideas?

You have your camera set to RAW format. It is not a compressed file, it is a full size file. Opening this in editing programs will either crash your computer or will refuse to open because of the size of the file. They are not damaged but your computer cannot handle the files. You should take them to a photo shop and have them put the files on a cd and consult your manual to change your camera to JPEG format.
You CAN!!! shoot in b/w with a d40, the only thing is you can't shoot in auto mode it has to be manual , aperture priority, or shutter prioirity. Go into menu - shooting mode - optimize image. you'll find it in there.
