MySql: what's the most efficient way of adding large numbers of unique records

Hi

I'm using classic asp and MySql.

I'm creating a survey and need to add up to 5,000 unique records at a time with a randomly generated user name and password amongst other things.

Currently I have a classic asp page that loops through and writes each individual record, which works fine for smaller quantities but drags it's heals with larger.

I'm sure there has to be a better way of doing this - can anyone point me in the right direction?

Many thanks
