Just from quickly looking at your connection string, I saw that you used " marks in your string. You don't actually need these. If you go to http://www.connectionstrings.com, you can get connection strings for various DB platforms. The one they suggest for Access is

Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\mydatabase.mdb;User Id=admin;Password=;

If you're not using a password for your database, then just leave the user id as admin and the password blank. Replace the C:\mydatabase.mdb with your actual database location and it should at least get you connected to the database.
