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....

1KB = 1024 bytes
1 MB = 1024 x 1024 = 1,048,576 bytes
1 GB = 1024 x 1024 x 1024 = 1,073,741,824 bytes

Remember B (bytes) and b (bits) are not the same.

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.
