Inserting records to MySQL Linked Server from SQL Server 2008

I have a Linked MySQL Server. This statement works fine:

'select Symbol  from reg_show.tblTest')

(there is a tblTest in MySQL db that has a single column Symbol varchar(10).
But when I try to insert records into MySQL from MSSQL server :

'select Symbol  from reg_show.tblTest')

I get this error :

"OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "MYSQL" returned message "[MySQL][ODBC 5.1 Driver][mysqld-5.0.27-community-nt-log]Commands out of sync; you can't run this command now".

maybe this helps:

I keep running into a funny issue with my Linked Server setup. If I have the “Don’t cache results” and “Force forward only cursors” options checked, any time I run an insert I get:
“OLE DB provider “MSDASQL” for linked server “test” returned message “[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-5.0.77-log]Commands out of sync; you can’t run this command now”.”

I can run the inserts without these options checked but after some time the MySQL server returns an “Out of Memory” error (which I imagine is do to it caching results). Anyone have some insights into this?

Yes!!!!! That's exactly the same issue that I had.

To run inserts
 “Don’t cache results” and “Force forward only cursors” have to be unchecked.
Which I'm sure would bring other problems later but for now I'm able to insert.

Thanks for your help, angelII!
