Inserting multiple rows into sql mobile

Hi i know this isn't sql server per se but hopefully someone may be able to help...

I'm using management studio to connect to my sql mobile database.

I'm trying to insert some dummy data into some tables, for example:

INSERT INTO FlooringTypes (FlooringType) VALUES ('Carpet')
INSERT INTO FlooringTypes (FlooringType) VALUES ('Smooth')

However it returns the error:
Major Error 0x80040E14, Minor Error 25501
> SELECT 'Carpet' INTO FlooringType
There was an error parsing the query. [ Token line number = 1,Token line offset = 17,Token in error = INTO ]

If i run them seperately it works fine.
I understand sql mobile doesn't support multiple select statements, is there a way around this at all as i have to insert quite a lot of dummy data and running one statement at a time is going to take forever.

Thanks
Rob
