Could you post a screenshot of your hand and it's UV layout too?

No access to 3ds Max here atm.

Hope this link works. My UVs are just junk right now because I keep retrying them...

That model is so low poly that I'd cosider Flatten Mapping and stitch the parts together back manually into chunks(one chunk for each finger, one for the back and inside of the hand) and if possible stich those together too into something like this
or this
