You are missing a setting somewhere, probably ISO.

Long exposures in bright daylight require some extra work.
Set the aperture to something very small, like f/16 or smaller.
Set the ISO to the base value or even "lo".
This might bring you down to the 1/4 second range.

You are still not going to get 30-40 seconds for good exposure without using neutral density filters, or at least a polarizing filter. Being within an hour of sunrise or sunset would help you.
