    tell me how to do this, i can read the file as a String and it reads out
    garbage (as you would expect), but i can not figuer out how to get it to
    read the binary and conver this in to some thing that is understandable??

    There's no such thing as "binary format". ALL files store binary data. To
    make your file into something understandable, you need information from the
    person or software that created it. That information needs to describe how
    the data in the file is organized.
