You need to make sure the film is in the correct spot before the take up spool will start winding the film, to short or two long, won't work, as far as ISO, the camera has contacts in it that read the DX code on the canister, if your canister don't have the DX coding, it will either default to ISO 100 or you will have to set the ISO manually..

Your best bet would be to see if you can find a owners manual for the camera and READ IT, this will go along ways to making sure your using the camera correctly, as sometimes misloading the film can cause a problem with the camera that will make it non-functional and require service..did you buy it at a shop? if so they should be able to help you out.
