Simple answer will be :DataGrid is OLD and GridView is NEW!GridView is introduced in ASP.NET 2.x (Visual Studio 2005). But still DataGrid is available there for compatibility.

Datagrid can be used in web also, the major differences are regarding the sorting, inserting which has been stated already.DataGrid can also be used in windows applications, but in earlier versions where datagrids were the only source i.e. ASP.NET 1.1, contains many issues and thus many people used to use XPTables instead of grid in windows applications.ThanksAshish Jain

GridView is latest version of DataGrid. GridView is formated control while DataGrid is unformated control. In GridView no coding require for sorting, editing, deleting. Hence we can say GridView has some extra feature.
