Datagrid not displaying all rows

I am using VS 2008, SQL CE and VB.
I have a DataGrid that is bound to via a recordset.

When I update the data source for the DataGrid, data in the DataGrid's visible rows are displayed correctly. However if you scroll down, the cells below are blank with a big "X". When you scroll back up, the rows that were displaying data are now replaced with big "X".

Here's the code:

Me.MyDataGrid.Doc = DockStyle.Bottom

Dim cmd as New SqlCECommand()
Dim conn as New SqlCEConnection()
Dim rs as SqlCEResultSet
conn.ConnectString ="Data Source = '\data.sdf'; mode=Exclusive;"
cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM table1"
rs = cmdExecuteResultSet(ResultSetOptions.Scrollable or ResultSetOptions.Updatable)

if rs.HasRows then
   Me.MyDataGrid.DataSource = rs
End If

rs.Close()
rs = Nothing
conn.Close()

How do I display all the rows and make the scroll bar work?

Have you tried using a SqlCeDataAdapter to fill a DataTable and then use that as data source of the grid?

I tried the following but it returns empty table:

        Dim cmd As New SqlCeCommand()
        Dim conn As New SqlCeConnection()
        Dim rs As SqlCeResultSet

        conn.ConnectionString = "Data Source = '\MyData.sdf'; mode=Exclusive;"
        conn.Open()

       cmd = conn.CreateCommand()
       cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM tools"
       
       rs = cmd.ExecuteResultSet(ResultSetOptions.Scrollable Or ResultSetOptions.Updatable)

       If rs.HasRows = True Then
                Dim adp As New SqlCeDataAdapter(cmd)
                Dim ds As New System.Data.DataSet()

                adp.Fill(ds)
                Me.MyDataGrid.DataSource = ds
                MyDataGrid.Visible = True
                MyDataGrid.Refresh()
        End If

can you try:

Me.MyDataGrid.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
