DataAdapter not updating SQL Server table

I have a routine in which I am attempting to loop through a text file using a StreamReader and import the data I mine from it to a SQL Server 2008 table called BSR.  I can populate an entire dataset with no problems (checked the dataset contents in debug mode and all is well) but it will not update to SQL Server no matter what I try.  

The dataset (ds) is of type dsBSR, which is a drag-and-drop from Server Explorer of the table BSR.  This is my first attempt at typed datasets and so far I am failing miserably.  The code is pasted below, and all it needs to do is add newly imported lines (which are in a table in the dataset) to the table in SQL Server.  Thanks in advance for your assistance!
Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM BSR", con)
        Dim con As New SqlConnection(My.Settings.BSROnSQLServer)
        Dim ds As New dsBSR
        Dim row As dsBSR.BSRRow
 
...        
 
        Try
            If con.State = ConnectionState.Closed Then
                con.Open()
            End If
 
            'Code to populate dataset is in this range
 
            ds.AcceptChanges()
            da.FillSchema(ds, SchemaType.Mapped, "BSR")
            Dim cb As New SqlCommandBuilder(da)
            da.InsertCommand = cb.GetInsertCommand
            da.UpdateCommand = cb.GetUpdateCommand
            MessageBox.Show(da.Update(ds, "BSR") & " records imported.", "Import results")
        Catch dbex As SqlException
            MessageBox.Show("Error: " & dbex.ToString)
        Finally
            con.Close()
        End Try
        ...

I think the call to AcceptChanges might be part of the problem. According to the documentation:

"When you call AcceptChanges on the DataSet, any DataRow objects still in edit-mode end their edits successfully. The RowState property of each DataRow also changes; Added and Modified rows become Unchanged, and Deleted rows are removed."

That means when you call Update and the framework looks at what it has to do it finds all the rows are in an Unchanged state and says, "Nothing to do here."

Thanks so much!  I meant to mention in my question that I was grasping at straws, trying everything I found on the net to try to make this work.  Your solution made my day!
