Problem reading data file using mget

I'm trying to read in a file of 16-bit signed data samples (generated by a logging system).
 
I try reading in the first 2000 samples using command
    Samples=mget(2000,'s',SampleFileHandle);
 
Problem is that only the first 535 values are read in.
 
Have also tried reading in using
    Samples=mtlb_fread(SampleFileHandle,2000,'int16');
 
If I do this I get an error "...error 10000, End of file reached before all matrix is read..."
 
If I try to read the same file in using MATLAB and the command
    Samples=fread(SampleFileHandle,2000,'int16');
then it reads in all 2000 values OK.
 
I wonder whether Scilab is misinterpreting one of the data values as an end-of-file marker, possibly the 536th value since that is where mget stops. When I read in using MATLAB, it turns out that the 536th element of Samples array is 26. Is this of special significance?
