SQL Express gives login failure message.

This is the connection string:

ConnectionString = "Data Source=ROD\\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=Options;Integrated security=SSPI"

But I get this error:

Cannot open database "Options" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'ROD\HP_Owner'.

I'm having trouble understanding why it won't login when I'm using Integrated security!?
