Is it physically possible for the actual drive (encasement) to be bulkier? <_<

otherwise... 1 Gigabyte pwns the 360 megabyte HDD :P

 

smaller ---> larger ;)

byte

kilobyte

megabyte

gigabyte

Is this a trick question?1GB=1,000MB

normally i'd let this slip.. but since it's answering someone who doesn't know... it's actually 1024MB...

 

1GB = 1024MB (GigaBytes : MegaBytes)

 

1MB = 1024KB (MegaBytes : KiloBytes)

 

1KB = 1024B (KiloBytes : Bytes)

 

1B = 8b (1 Byte = 8 bits)

 

so there you have it... that's all you really need to know... maybe you'll have to know about TeraBytes soon... but for now, that's it. :)

actually those are gibibyte, kibibyte, mebibyte.

 

Giga mega and kilo are the even numbers. That is, if you want to be exact and all :)

1KB = 1024B  (KiloBytes : Bytes)

You are incorrect its only 1024 in the OS, everthing is uped a bit in the os, look at your clock speed in POST its gonna be about 20-50mhz slower... anyway

 

1000EB=1ZB (Exabytes : Zettabytes)

 

1000PB = 1EB (Petabytes : Exabytes)

 

1000TR = 1PB (Terabytes : Petabytes)

 

1000GB = 1TB (GigaBytes : Terabytes)

 

1GB = 1000MB (GigaBytes : MegaBytes)

 

1MB = 1000KB (MegaBytes : KiloBytes)

 

1KB = 1000B (KiloBytes : Bytes)

 

1B = 8b (1 Byte = 8 bits)

 

10,000,000,000GB = 1 Zettabyte, cant wait till our hard drives are that big!

 

I hope thanks helps...Yes we havnt gone over Gigabytes yet, but all those are still out there...yes they are real...

omg p8baller... binary system? hello? base2? does this ring any bells?

and joe, while mebi MIGHT be the official name for a 2^20 quantity, no-one uses it for computers... i've never heard anyone mention it til you just did... not even the professors at uni who write books on computers!

 

mega = 2^20 = 1048576

 

unless you sell hard-drives and then its a million ;)

I'm just quoting the National Institue of Standards and Technology and the group that administers SI (System International, or the Metric system)

 

Perhaps you need to get out more in the world? The bit torrent client I use along with the traffic graphs on many major systems use KiB. The reason your 100 gig hard drive only shows up as 80 or so is because Microsoft got it wrong, not the hard drive manufacturer or anyone else. Software makers are to blame for this.
