site map datasource not displaying for asp:menu control in vs2010

I'm trying to insert an asp:menu control on my master page in visual studio 2010 and I'm using a web.sitemap file as my datasource.  However, when I try to select a new datasource on the menu drop down list nothing appears for me to choose.  Why is this happening and how do I fix it?

The following print screen is what I'm referring too.  The data source type should show site map and/or xml file but instead nothing displays.  Also I'm attaching my code for my sitemap
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<siteMap xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/AspNet/SiteMap-File-1.0">
  <siteMapNode url="~/" title="Home" description="Home">
    <siteMapNode url="~/Default.aspx" title="Home" description="Go to the homepage" />
    <siteMapNode url="~/Reviews/Default.aspx" title="Reviews" description="Reviews published on this site">
      <siteMapNode url="~/Reviews/AllByGenre.aspx" title="By Genre" description="All Reviews Grouped by Genre" />
      <siteMapNode url="~/Reviews/All.aspx" title="All Reviews" description="All Reviews" />
    </siteMapNode>
    <siteMapNode url="~/About/Default.aspx" title="About" description="About this Site">
      <siteMapNode url="~/About/Contact.aspx" title="Contact Us" description="Contact Us" />
      <siteMapNode url="~/About/AboutUs.aspx" title="About Us" description="About Us" />
    </siteMapNode>
    <siteMapNode url="~/Login.aspx" title="Login" description="Log in to this web site" />
  </siteMapNode>
</siteMap>

Open in new window

Actually you need to drop SiteMapDataSource on the page from ToolBox->under DataTab.
Then you will be able to see all DataSources on that page.
