Since the OP is not a Python programmer and doesn't know
how to modify the carriage return then I doubt he will know if
he is using binary mode. I think Kent's suggestion is best that
he contact the supplier - blind tinkering is more likely to cause
more damage than help.

The alternative suggestion is for the OP to learn Python
I suppose! :-)
