Access 2000 compatability

I have just installed Visual Basic 6 from the Visual Studio CDs. On a form I have a data control, and I set the databasename to an Access 2000 database, but when I try and select a record source I get an error box saying 'unrecognized database format'. When in the past I've used older version Access databases there has never been a problem. Is there something I can dowload (like an update) to that VB can work with the Access 2000 database?

Actually the problem was fixed in SP4 but I would install SP5:

SP6 was also released but I have not tried it yet.
