    So, I got a Rom thats compressed from 16/32gb(as says the nfo file) but when I unrar it, its only 4 gigs.. what gives? Am I extracting the multi-rar files wrong? Is it one of those bit-byte deals?

    No, the nfo files say something in gigabits (not gigabytes) but 4 gb sounds about right. There aren't any roms at 16gb / 32 gb obviously. I don't think the cartridges hold that much memory ( don't quote me on this though)

    Yes that's it. 8 bit=1byte. So it is 32 gigabit = 4 gigabytes.

    You are mixing Gigabits with Gigabytes.. There isis a "Noob Paradise" thread where you can ask these questions... And there is a FAQ too... Is top of this forum section...
