What I have tried:

    Dim str As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream()
    dt.WriteXml(str, True)
    str.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin)
    Dim sr As StreamReader = New StreamReader(str)
    Dim xmlstr As String
    xmlstr = sr.ReadToEnd()
    Return (xmlstr)
End Function

Private Sub btnSave_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnSave.Click
    Dim dt As DataTable = New DataTable()
    dt = GetData()
    Dim XMLstring As String = clsAPI.ConvertDatatableToXML(dt)
    Me.txtComments.Text = XMLstring

End Sub

Public Function GetData() As DataTable
    Dim dt As New DataTable
    Dim adp As New SqlDataAdapter("usp_TR_Data", conn)
    adp.SelectCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
    adp.SelectCommand.CommandTimeout = 150

    With adp.SelectCommand.Parameters
        .Add("@Action", SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = "CONVERT-XML"
        .Add("@SONo", SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = Me.txtSONo.Text
    End With
    Return dt
End Function

Read the error error message - it's pretty explicit!
Cannot serialize the DataTable. DataTable name is not set.

So ... set the DataTable.TableName property [^] before you try to serialize it:
dt.TableName = "MyTable"
