Hello all,

Quick question. I purchased a brand new Nikon D5000 with the 18-55 vr lens. No memory card just yet. The question is, does the built-in flash supposed to fire without the memory card? I went into a dark room and the flash pop-up but did not fire when I pressed the shutter button all the way down. Is it because I have no memory card inserted?
