I can't get bulb mode when using remote, I set mode to manual, select bulb, then select remote and bulb is replaced with TIME? every time the same thing happens, I have used it with success a month ago, but somethings changed and I don't know what. any ideas?
"Bulb" is where the shutter remains open WHILE the shutter release button is pressed. You do not need a remote for this mode.
"Time" is where the shutter opens on pressing the shutter release button and closes when again pressing the shutter release button. The remote is required in this mode. You need to set the Release Mode to Delayed Remote or Quick-Response Remote (P54 of your manual).
I suppose you need to change the "Release Mode" so that "Time" is not activated.
Since I don't have a remote- do you HAVE to have a remote to use "Time" mode? The manual insinuates that it is "required".

I have used this before, and it worked ok. this time, when I set the release to remote, Bulb disappears and Time is shown, I don't understand why, I've only had the D60 10 weeks so I'm not that experienced.
>Bulb disappears >and Time is shown, I don't understand why,
Because if it was 'bulb' then you'd have to keep the remote control's button pressed for the duration of the exposure (not good for battery consumption), with 'time' you press the remote's button once to open the shutter and again to close it.
i ran into a problem with this.. you have to setup the remote for the camera first, and then select bulb mode. i usually snap a quick picture before setting it to bulb.. then you click it, and it opens the shutter, click again and it closes it.
