bSource.DataSource = ds;
is not good.
I would write something like this:
ds = new DataSet();
dAdapter1.Fill(ds, "myTable");
bSource = new BindingSource();
bSource.DataSource = ds.Tables["myTable"];

BTW, I told you in the other thread that the DataSet can "host" several tables.
I see here that you have a DataAdapter named dAdapter1. So if you have later a dAdapter2 that deals with another table of your DB, you should take the oportunity to reuse your DataSet. Perhaps the DataSet can be a member of your class (depending on your design needs).
Then you will certainly write:
dAdapter1.Fill(ds, "myTable1");
dAdapter2.Fill(ds, "myTable2");
And you don't need to give the tables in your dataset the same name that the real table have in your DB.
