Mysql/Access ~ unable to update record because another user already did

Hi, I got a database the link to Mysql. i'm very new at this and have encounter a problem that prevented me form venturing forward.
A "one to many" relationship between two tables (tbl_Ship,tbl_Shipjourney) link to a form with subform in access.

[tbl_ship] only have 1 primary key (ship_id:[ auto_increment]).
[tbl_shipjourney] has 2 (ship_id:int , route_id: [auto_increment]).

The problem is with the subform, it records the journey detail of a ship. Entering a new record worked perfectly but until i decided to correct some mistake in the subform. The funny thing is, only the first record of each ship (subform) is un-updatable. The rest is ok.

When i try to update the first record, MSaccess will pop up a dialog saying there is another user updating it.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Do you have any code that is updating the record via SQL?

Also, are you using the latest version of the MySQL ODBC driver?

Jet/access often don't like the precise timing schemes of sql server and mysql...sometimes adding and timestamp field to your tables and queries will clear up the problem
