A FITS file consists of one or more Header + Data Units (HDUs), where the first HDU is called the Primary HDU', or Primary Array'. In some FITS file, the primary HDU is zero dimensional, while the subsequent HDU's have valid dimensions. FITS file viewers such as fv and SAOImage D9 seem to be fine with these files. GDAL on the other hand, sees the 0D primary array and generates an error message that the file is not 2D or 3D.

I can supply an example FITS file, however, it is rather large (134MB) and I don't know of any way to crop it to a smaller size.

Some sample data would be essential to have.
