Porting an image upload script Linux to W2K

Can someone tell me from the code chunk below if there is an obvious reason why the image upload script I have been using works fine on Linux/Apache but not on W2K/IIS? I have included the few lines of script that do the actual work of creating the image file on the remote server - the script runs fine but corrupts the image on upload. This is not consistant - sometimes the image won't display in the browser, sometimes it appears but is visibly messed up, plus the OS can never report it's properties.

open (OUTFILE, ">$basedir/$fileName")||die(print "can't open");

while (my $bytesread = read($file, my $buffer, 1024)) {
print OUTFILE $buffer;
close (OUTFILE);

Any help much appreciated.
