Default Nikon D40 Shutter Speeds

I was hoping you can help me. I have a Nikon D40 and I am looking for some type of chart or legend that shows the shutter speeds for this camera. I have looked high and low and cannot find anything. I have even posted on other forums but I am not really getting the answer I am looking for.

They are not showing as fractions. I understand the 1" or 2" as being one or two seconds it is the other ones I am having issues with.
For instance I am looking at one now that shows 6o, 8oo,4ooo or 1oo, 16o. What I would like is a chart or something that tell me what they all are. The small os is a letter not a zero.

I am getting answers like this: (see below) which I understand.
2s = 2
1s = 1
1/2 = 2
1/4 = 4
1/8 = 8
1/15 = 15
1/30 = 30
1/60 = 60
1/125 = 125
1/250 = 250
1/500 = 500
1/1000 = 1000
1/2000 = 2000
I have even contacted Nikon support but only get similar answers.
Thanks for you help.

I'm not sure I understand what the dilemma is. You say you are seeing values of 60, 800, 400. From the chart you posted you now know that equates to 1/60 of a second, 1/800 of a second, 1/400 of a second etc... What more info are you looking for?

I believe I should have posted this under Nikon DSLR. Can it be moved?

Again, following the same pattern as above, 4000 would indicate 1/4000 of a second.
