ODBCDataReader to SQLDataReader

I have an older .Net Windows Service that I am converting.  The Service polls ISAM files and gets the latest records.  The Service creates an ODBCDataReader for reading the ISAM files.

The conversion requires that I read the ISAM files and then write the resulting dataset to SQL Server.

Once I have the ODBCDataReader filled, then is there an easy way to write this data to a SQL Server 2005 database.  Currently the application is using a very long ConvertDataReadertoDataSet function that is timing out some service running on the Linux box.    I don't have any control over the Linux box so I have to make this work from my end.  

I have attached the function that is being used that is timing out the service.  The column count is 45 which is chewing up time ConvertDataReaderToDataSe1t.txt

The basic idea would be to loop through the data reader and call a store proc. The code i posted is in C#, but it should be easy enough to convert.
SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(myConnString);
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("StoreProcName", conn);

conn.Open();

for( int i = 1; i<isamReader.Length; i++)
{
   cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ParamName1", isamReader["Field1"].ToString()); //Probably should check for DBNull.Value before converting to string, you should also convert to the correct data type
   cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ParamName2", isamReader["Field2"].ToString());
   .
   .
   .
   cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ParamNameN", isamReader["FieldN"].ToString());

   cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
   cmd.Parameters.Clear();
}

conn.Close

That looks a lot cleaner than that other one.  Thank you.
