Trying to display a Binary from a string

Hi All,

Battling away I need to display a binary from a string "4020",
I have used the method
            Hexvalue2 = Convert.ToUInt32(Returned, 16);

to convert my string to a form that can be used that with

            if ((Hexvalue2 & 0x0001) == 0)
                //MessageBox.Show("hello bit 1 not set");
                checkBox1.Checked = false;
                label9.Text = "False";
               // MessageBox.Show("bit 1 set");
                checkBox1.Checked = true;
                label9.Text = "True"; 
to check if bits are set and update a string accordingly This appears to working fine but bits 4 & 32 seem to inverted I was hoping for a look at the binary data before yelling fowl to higher ups! So I did the following
Hexvalue2 = Convert.ToUInt32(IU_status,2);
            textBox2.Text = Hexvalue2.ToString();

and get an Could not find any recognizable digits error. Is the correct way of doing what I'm after or have I been seduced by Convert.To again?
