K200d flash ISO

hey, I just upgraded from a k100d to a k200d. I have it set on auto iso and i am pretty sure on my k100d when i popped up the flash, the iso set back to 200, but for some reason it uses the same iso as with the flash down on the k200d, anywhere from 100-1600. That doesn't make much sense to me. Is this a setting somewhere or am i mistaken?

I don't have any of these cameras, but only a K10D.
If you are in one of the Auto modes (P, A ...) and have Auto ISO on with flash, the camera uses normally the highest possible ISO.
On the other hand, if you go to M, ISO changes to the lowest value and stays there.
I would recommed to use flash in M.
