How do I get an image file into SQL DB and display in bound DataGridViie

I have created a test database with a column of type "image" and bound it to a "DataGridViewImageColumn" column on a DataGridView.

Our user, using on OpenDialog, selects a file, and from that I get the "Icon" asscoiated with that file and save in a variable: "myIcon"

I need to save this Icon image, not a link to it, in the DB and also display it on the "DataGridView"

The code:

  imageTestBindingSource.AddNew();
  DataRowView currentRow = (DataRowView)imageTestBindingSource.Current;
  MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
  myIcon.Save(ms);
  currentRow["image"] = ms.GetBuffer
  imageTestBindingSource.EndEdit();
  imageTestTableAdapter.Update(xtracTechSpecDataSet.ImageTest);          
  this.imageTestTableAdapter.Fill(this.xtracTechSpecDataSet.ImageTest);

appears to put data into the DB, but I get a "DataGridView Default Error Dialog" as soon as this last bit of code runs.

It would seem that the DataGridView does'nt know how to display the Icon.

On a side issue I am able to get the "icon" image file to display directly to an unbound "DataGridViewImageColumn" using:

  imageTestDataGridView.Rows[0].Cells[0].Value = myIcon;

Not quite sure where I'm going wrong.
