It's 32 megaBYTES, meaning 256 megaBITS.

1 megaBYTE = 8 megaBITS.

ROM sizes are usually given in megaBITS.

Also, manufacturers often state flashcard sizes in megabits, instead of megabytes.

So before considering a flashcard, check for megabits/megabytes, because it may turn out the card is 8 times smaller than you thought
