Then use the string manipulation commands to remove the commas and brackets and insert return characters. Write the string to file. Note that in Mma3.0.0, the file I/O is very slow, much slower than in Mma2.2. This is remedied in Mma3.0.1. Perhaps the Mma3.0.0 patch might help. You can get a patch from Wolfram, but it is not on their website, so you have to call them up.
