Is there a better way to insert blob images from SQL to Access DB?

I'm currently copying blob images from sql to access.  It works fine the way I'm doing it, but I've noticed that the query uses a lot of resources on the server.  Is there a better way I can do this?  I've pasted the code.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.Open "SELECT * FROM "&lbxblobtable&" WHERE d_busdate >= CAST('"&BeginDate&"' AS smalldatetime) AND d_busdate <= CAST('"&EndDate&"' AS smalldatetime)", Connection

Set objFirstTable = Server.CreateObject("ADOX.Table")
objFirstTable.Name = ""&lbxblobtable&""

for each column in rs.fields 
ct = column.type 
	if ct = 200 then 
		ct = 202
	elseif ct = 131 then 
		ct = 3		
	end if 
	objFirstTable.Columns.Append column.name, ct
objADOXDatabase.Tables.Append objFirstTable 
Set Connection2 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

Set sqlcmd = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")

Connection2.ConnectionString = "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("WebLITS\App\"&randomNumber&"_"&lockboxname&".mdb") 


If rs.EOF Then 
'	Response.Write("No BLOB Records to Update!") 
'	Response.write "<br>"  
'	Response.write "<br>" 

'	for each column in rs.fields
'	st = st & column.name & ", "
'	next
'	st = left(st,len(st)-2)

Do While NOT rs.Eof
	SQL = " "
	for each column in rs.fields
	SQL = SQL & " ?,"
	SQL = left(SQL,len(SQL)-1)

	sqlcmd.ActiveConnection = Connection2
	sqlcmd.CommandType = 1
	SqlStmt = "INSERT INTO "&lbxblobtable&" VALUES (" & SQL & ")"
	sqlcmd.CommandText = SqlStmt

   	sqlcmd.Parameters.Append sqlcmd.CreateParameter("ID", 3, 1, , rs("ID"))
	sqlcmd.Parameters.Append sqlcmd.CreateParameter("BUSDATE", 202, 1, Len(Trim(rs("D_BUSDATE"))), Trim(rs("D_BUSDATE")))
	sqlcmd.Parameters.Append sqlcmd.CreateParameter("REFNO", 202, 1, Len(Trim(rs("D_REFNO"))), Trim(rs("D_REFNO")))
	sqlcmd.Parameters.Append sqlcmd.CreateParameter("IMAGE", 205, 1, 2147483647, rs("imgData"))
	Set sqlrst = sqlcmd.Execute()

	sqlcmd.Parameters.Delete ("ID")
	sqlcmd.Parameters.Delete ("BUSDATE")
	sqlcmd.Parameters.Delete ("REFNO")	
	sqlcmd.Parameters.Delete ("IMAGE")		
End If
