Now I've a smart card reader and I'm reading my cards but
the Start sentinel, End Sentinel and LRC characters are
not displayed/readed.

Yes, The start and stop sentinels are written. The circuitry within the reader looks for them. They are usually non printing characters like Chr$(12) or Chr$(13). Some security card readers even use non- standard sentinels just to protect the integrity of the system.

And the LRC are also written on the card?
