Have you an idea about how to register a large number of data acquired by an Arduino uno card in a text file??

The data should be stable (unchanging) at the time the sprocket hole is sensed.

Acquire data from a tape reader

I have an optical tape reader reference Eeco and I want that once the band (with 8 holes + a small hole "sprocket hole") going on inside I can acquire data written on punched tape. I started by connecting the Arduino Uno board with  card reader linked to strip connector 25 pins and I put a program to read the 8 bits of data out of the connector but I'm stuck on the signal generated by SPKT "sprocket holes. "

Is that the data do not change at that the time of activation SPKT signal or not?
