Help Needed - Convert all Data to Insert Statements

I have a MySQL DB on a server and am required to migrate them to another. These 2 DB servers are not from the same web hosting company and I have limited access rights to them. I am given a script and if run, it will generate create tables and insert default records onto the new database server. I will then do a delete all records from all tables. Now comes the interesting part - Import all records from original database server to new database server.

My instinct tell me to come out with a script and convert all existing records from tables into INSERT statements. Then use run these statements on the new database server. I have got more 30 over tables with no foreign keys (this makes things simpler). Anyone have got a generic script that will generate INSERT statements for all tables?
