I've encountered the same problems before. The following code are pulled
from a program I wrote. It should imply solutions. Especially note the use
of the option ExponentFunction in NumberForm.

data2 = SetPrecision[ Chop[ Flatten[ data2,1], 10^-(exportPrecision+1)],
exportPrecision];
OpenWrite[fileName];
WriteString[fileName, "#Converted from Mathematica\n"];
WriteString[fileName, "#by SaveToRotaterFormat.m\n"];
WriteString[fileName, "#Xah Lee. (74631.731 at compuserve.com)\n"];
WriteString[fileName, "#http://www.best.com/~xah/\n";];
WriteString[ fileName,
StringReplace[
ToString@ NumberForm[data2,
ExponentFunction->(If[-Infinity<#<Infinity,Null,#]&)
],
{ "{" -> "",
"}, " ->StringJoin[ " ", ToString@ colorCode," \n"],
"}}" -> StringJoin[ " ", ToString@ colorCode," "],
"," -> " "
}
]
];
Close[fileName]
]
