Why doesn't the database I created in access 2000 work with my Visual Basic?

I am using:

Set DbUser = DBEngine.OpenDatabase(CurDir & "\dbs\" & txtName.Text & ".mdb")
Set rsGeneral = DbUser.OpenRecordset("General", dbOpenTable)

to open my database and table and i get '3343 Unrecognized database format Sophie.mdb'

if i convert the databse to an earlier version of access, its is capable of opening it but not of adding any information. HELP!
