Cisco sg200-8 added to connect additional devices.
I added a cisco sg200-8 to an area where I need to add more than one device. I set the port as trunk and connected to the drop. On the meraki switch I see the switch on the port and made the port on the switch as trunk as well. However, the native vlan is 100 but if I change it on the cisco sg switch it looses connectivity (native vlan on all the switches is 100). Is this switch too old to work with the Meraki switches? what switch would be recommended to place here to extend the connectivity to other devices. Also, since the switch looses connectivity the device I plug in do not get connected. Any ideas or suggestions on what I can add on this area to extend the network? Much appreciated.

@rafi What Meraki switch do you have? The switches should be able to work together but mixing Cisco Meraki and oter Cisco switches does have a couple of caveats. For a trunk please make sure both switches are including VLAN 1 in the trunk, secondly make sure that the STP is not per VLAN on the other Cisco switch.
