GIF image not showing in crystal report

i am using the code below to get an image to display on a crystal report. i then created a report using the xsd as the datasource, which created a blob field on the report. my problem is, there is no image being displayed. i can see that the dataset is holding the image after a step-through, so can anyone help?
     Dim ds As New DataSet
        Dim dt As New DataTable
        Dim row1 As DataRow
        Dim values(0) As Object
        ds.Tables.Add("Images")
        ds.Tables(0).Columns.Add("ImageColumn", GetType(Byte()))
        If Not ipNotes.Image Is Nothing Then values(0) = ipNotes.Image.ToArray
        row1 = ds.Tables(0).NewRow()
        row1(0) = values(0)
        ds.Tables(0).Rows.Add(row1)
        'ds.Tables.Add(dt)
        ds.WriteXmlSchema("c:\PSI\reportschema.xsd")
        Dim cr As New imagereport
        cr.SetDataSource(ds)
        Dim frm As New Form3
        frm.CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = cr
        frm.Show()

To the best of my recollection, .gifs aren't supported.  You need to use .jpg or .bmp files.  Even when the report is viewed in HTML or DHTML, the image is converted to .jpg or .png.

Does the report display from the Crystal designer?

Is this on the development machine with Crystal loaded?

right now i'm using a crystal report viewer just to check for the image, but in production, the report will be printed directly without having the capability to view it. it displays with a date, but no image. i am using cr that comes with vs.net

i think there is a problem with the line that reads row1(0) = values(0) since i'm not seeing the array there at the step-through, but i do see it up until then.
