Updating xmldatasource from gridview

I have a gridview which is populated from an xmldatasource, "xmlSegments" (from an .xml file in App_Data).

Here's the bit out of the .aspx file:
 
        <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="XmlSegments"
            AutoGenerateEditButton="True"  >
          </asp:GridView>

  <asp:XmlDataSource ID="XmlSegments" runat="server"
        datafile="App_Data/Segments.xml"></asp:XmlDataSource>

I can edit the data, and when I look at it via the snippet below, I see the values are updated:

        For Each cl As TableCell In editingRow.Controls

            Dim contrl As Control = cl.Controls(0)
            If TypeOf contrl Is TextBox Then
                Dim newText As String = CType(contrl, TextBox).Text
            End If
        Next


However, when I write the .xml back via

   XmlSegments.Save()

The changes are not captured. What do I need to do before I write the file?

Yes, I'd read that before.

I guess the best anyone can come up with is Google MSDN?
