hi all

i have a bit of a rookie question. I bought an (admittedly cheap) extension tube, but my D5100 doesn't like it. It tells me that there is no lens attached when I use it. Is there something I have to turn off in the camera? I didn't get one with AF and bells and whistles since I was going to use it for macro and I don't use af anyway.. maybe I should have just splashed out.

any ideas? the extension tube is a Nikon brand one... my macro lens is a Tamron, but it didn't work with the standard nikkor either...
