D40 sb400

How come when you put the SB400 on and tell the camera to use the flash, it doesn't compensate for the flsh when metering? I always have to use trial and error to find the right shutter speed to make the flashed image correct. Shouldn't the flash being on there adjust the metering so that when you meter correctly, the image comes out right with the flash? Mine always shows the same metering I would have without the flash, so if I metered correctly, according to the bar, I would get completely white images.
