    I meant...>_> I think there was something about how 16 mb and 128 mb are the same. (They're for saves...aren't they?)

    Maybe it would help if you look at this?

    It's kinda hard to explain it...

    128 megabits equals 16 megabytes. It's common to use the latter in advertisements, since, well, it sounds bigger.

    128Mb(Megabits) = 16MB(Megabytes)

    Mb / 8 = MB

    Huh?

    If you meant the memory...that's different. >_> 16 mb/128 mb was used as a term for saves...

    I really am still mostly in the dark here...

    It's not lying. It says 128Mb (megabit, small b) which is equal to 16MB (megabyte big b). Just divide by 8. Yeah it is choosing the bigger number but its a different unit too. Its the same with internet connections like I have a ~8Mbit/s connection (=1MB/s connection).

    just so you know, official ram pack can't be used for playing gba games (the specifically designed it so it wouldn't work for that)

    128mb is just marketing, it just sounds better with 128mb than with 16MB.

    Just gotta remind you that DS-X advertised with having 4Gb on the first version and 16Gb on the second version while they in fact where 512MB and 2GB.
