Check out "binarica":
The Binarica notebook contains cells for fast reading of a binary file
and conversion of its IEEE single-precision floating point byte stream
into Mathematica (machine-precision) Reals. The processing maintains
the (Mathematica 4.X) PackedArray representation so crucial to memory
and speed efficiency.
Although crafted only for PC-endian byte format, and merely for IEEE
single-precision, the methods provided are sufficiently generalizable
by an interested user.
I've found it quite tricky, but doable, to get near-optimal space-time
performance on binary import.
