Not sure about all of your formats, but the SRTM data can be obtained from the
USGS seamless server in a number of different formats including ArcGrid, Tiff,
and ascii I believe.  The easiest one to import is the Tiff for me.  When
downloading the data, just before you hit the final download button on the
website, choose modify request, or something like that.  In there you can
change the data format that you download.  Good luck on the other formats!
