"Help with Long Exposure Shot"

Hey everyone, I need a little help. Previously I had a Nikon D3100 and when I wanted to take a nice long exposure shots of a say, water rapids, I'd setup my camera, set my aperture and attach my shutter release cable and click (push up to lock) and wait a good 30 to 40 secs and boom, I'd get my results.

With my new D7100, that's not working. I'm using the same type of settings and the same cable release and my images just aren't coming out. I've messed with the "A" settings and "S" settings. I've tried bringing my shutter speed down and my images are getting whited out. I'm just confused as to why it worked on my D3100 and when doing the same thing on my D7100, it's not.

Any suggestions? As for the type of shots, I'm taking pictures of waterfalls, streams and rapids at local parks. They are typically shot around 2-3 pm with some tree coverage if that helps.

Thanks,
