Default Flash will work on film camera but not digital?

In article
, DaveC

Is there any reason an "economy" flash (Achiever 630AF) will work on a film
camera but not on a digital camera. I've been told this but see no reason for
it to be so.

The destination camera is Canon PowerShot G9.

if it's designed for a film camera it probably has an older and no
longer used ttl system and that won't work with newer cameras.

you may be able to get it to work if it has a fully manual mode or an
automatic mode where the sensor on the camera adjusts the flash, no ttl
at all.
