                //Open connection and execute insert query.
                con.Open();
                cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
                con.Close();

Do you want to delete all the images from the directory ?

By the way, fi.Delete() --> which file do you want to delete, because it's outside the loop. It will always contain the latest file :)

You can try the following. Add the following items behind con.Close();
(probably one of those will block you)
imageSampleData  = null;
cmd = null;
