'Create an instance of the FSO
Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'Create the object and the binary file to write to
Set objBinaryFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(Server.MapPath("outputfile.ext"))
'Write the information to the file
objBinaryFile.Write binInformation
'Close the file
'Clean up
Set objFSO = Nothing

Should note that you should change the outputfile.ext to whatever filename you want and should change the binInformation variable to whatever variable name your binary information is stored in.

Hope this helps.

If you have a binary stream.. create the file using fso.. you can open the file as

set objBinaryFile = Server.CreateObject("BinaryFileStream.Object")
Response.BinaryWrite objBinaryFile.GetFileBytes(CStr(strFileName))
set objBinaryFile = nothing

BinaryFileStream object dll can be found here:
