Hello all. Has anyone here had problems Importing hdf 
files into Mathematica (v5) only using the "Import" 

Specifically, it seems that only sds fields where the data 
is a 32bit Integer or Real number are properly read in. 
All fields where the data type is a 8 or 16bit number are 
not correctly interpreted. for instance, all 8 or 16bit 
numbers that should be "-99" are displayed as "-32768".

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am really 
stumped on this one and can't find alot written about hdf 
and Mathematica.
