You need to change a few things,

//dt.Columns.Add("name", typeof(string));
<< uncomment that out.
comboBox1.ValueMember = "id";
should be
comboBox1.ValueMember = "name";

3)I think you need to change the binding from:
new Binding("Text", comboBox1, "Text");

new Binding("Text", comboBox1, "SelectedValue");
