Why is my asp. net menu control not being recognized?

I'm converting an old VB program (written in Dreamweaver) to C#, using VS 2010. Rather than opening up a new project, I opened up the old project in VS 2010, got it working and then decided to add my own C# files (site master etc.) to the program and go from there. I've hit an early hitch, as I was trying to figure out why my asp menu control wasn't styling as it should. After drilling down, using firebug (thank you firefox, such a great invention, but i digress...), I noticed that my HTML, was not rendering an asp menu [div] but rather a table. I'm using the same Site.Master code (HTML)  & style sheet but for some reason the code renders a table instead of the asp menu control [div], and is therefore using different styles [styling(s)]. How do I fix this? Do I need to start from scratch?

<table is definitely a table and not a div.  Since you have changed programming platform AND the language you should have started from scratch

That's kind of what I thought / what I needed to hear. In a related, theoretical / means of operation kind of question: If you had to maintain an app in an older language, that you weren't as comfortable / familiar with, (which is visual basic, for me), you would probably just start from scratch in a more familiar comfortable environment huh? Especially since you'd be maintaining it in the long run?
