430EXIII-RT with 320EX as a slave wont work

Hi,

So I recently purchased a 430EXIII-RT and already owned a 320EX.  I was hoping to use the 320 as a slave but I can not seem to get my 320EX to fire as a slave off of the 430.  

 

I tried both ETTL and Gr mode with the 430EXIII-RT as Master with the flash on camera in the shoe.  I Scanned the best channel for my location and set '2' as the channel instead of 'AUTO'.  The flash will fire in the shoe on 3 bodies.  

 

On the 320EX I set the switches for 'Slave', Gr 'A', and Ch '2'.  3 feet apart.  The Video light flashes in the slave mode but the 320 will not fire.   

 

Bodies:  6D Original, 5D Mark II, 1DX Original.  


Using and setting up wireless is new to me and I cant seem to find a post where anyone is using these two together.  

 

Any advice?

Can the 430X III-RT be used as an optical master?

The 430EXIII-RT can be used as a master, but only in radio wireless. The 320EX only has optical wireless so these two are not compatible.
