    Search before asking something, please...
    32 megaBYTE = 256 MegaBIT
    1 megaBYTE = 8 megaBIT

    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 [​IMG]

    EDIT: Looks like Jefklak was faster [​IMG]
