The "500 Cad" will operate only in manual exposure mode. It is just like any non-CPU lens (no electronics) in that the D60 can't meter with it. Use manual exposure mode and guess at the shutter speed needed, using the histogram as your "meter". Or buy a hand-held meter.

The lens would meter on a D200, D300, D7000, etc. since they will meter with non-CPU lenses, i.e. older, manual focus, non-electronic lenses.

There wasn't any need to always have to use a tripod on your N4004 in manual modes. You were apparently using too slow of shutter speeds when "off automatic". A good book is "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson.
