use SSIS, it is a quick and easy way to set this up to do this...it uses BULK INSERT, which is key for you in this scenario.

To do it, right click the source db, go to tasks, andthen export data.  from there, follow the wizard....save the package at the end so you can use it again if you need to.

when you created the table on the destination db, did you make sure that you DID NOT copy the indexes as well?

I just created the Primary key index.. Not other indexes.

you're going to be better off if you don't have that...especially if the PK is not an identity column...
