    8 bits in a Byte. [​IMG] Do the math. [​IMG]

    128/8=16
    16 MB

    :edit

    most of the games I've been playing have been 256mb or 512mb... not 128mb though...

    To be quite honest with you I never used KB and kb or GB and gb but i'm 100 percent sure that the same thing applies. Since kbps and gbs show up when you check speeds of lines. One example is to do a google search for CNET speed test and run a test on your connection. You can see how they type up the speeds. All lower case when referring to bits. However I think it has more to do with the B. Whether the B is lower case or Cap shows if it's a bit or a byte. Respectively.


    Hope that helps.

    Big B is byte, little b is bit

    like the G6 lite is 4 Gb or 4 gigabit = 512MB (megabite)

    Well you've got a 1 GB (Gigabyte) microSD card, which means you can put 1 Gigabyte of data on it.

    A 128 Mbits rom is 16 MegaBytes (8 Mbits = 1 MByte)
    You can theoretically put 62 games on your cart (64 x 16 = 992)
    But most games are bigger than 16 Megabytes.
    It's usually 32 Megabytes or 64.
