Compatibility between byte and character streams?

in how far are byte and character streams compatible?
InputStreamReader shows, that it is possible to build a character stream on top of a byte stream without losing functionality. Is this possible the other way round (by building a byte stream on top of a character stream)? Are there bytes that cannot be transformed into a character?

Thanks in advance,
Michael Herrmann
