Meg Byte Gig Storage Table

1 Meg = how many bytes?
1 Kb = how many bytes?
1 Gig = how many bytes?   How many Meg?

I dont remember exactly, but I don't think in computers it is multiple of 10 that they use... I think it is multiple of 1024....

1 kb = 1024 bytes (2^10)
1 mb = 1048576 bytes (2^20)
1 gb = 1073741824 bytes (3^30)

oops, that should be 2^30 for GB
1KB = 1024 bytes
1 MB = 1024 x 1024 = 1,048,576 bytes
1 GB = 1024 x 1024 x 1024 = 1,073,741,824 bytes

My apologies - I thought he'd understand in reference to his question what I was referring to.
Note that although those numbers are technically correct disk manufacturers are now tending to use the term gigabyte to refer to one billion bytes just to make their disks sound bigger.
