    look mate it all depends on the size of the file or rom that you are going to be putting on the device.

    Just do the math, 1 gb = 1000 mb (minus fomatting, which is normally SMALL)

    I've got about 20 on mine at any given time. Some are quite large (EBA-ish), and some are quite small (Electroplankton-ish).

    20 to 30 games, assuming they're trimmed & average size.

    As few as 7 if they're untrimmed 128 MB roms, or more than 100 of the smallest trimmed roms.

    I just don't get why people ask this question. (Similarly how people ask how many mp3's can a 1 gig ipod fit)

    Are they too lazy to do simple math or they don't actually know what 1 gig is?

    Somehow I picture these kind of people going into a car shop and asking the salesman "Heya mate, how fast is 60 km/h?"

    I've come to the conclusion that some people just don't have the ability to find answers to simple questions. I mean seriously, if you don't know how much a gig is, you shouldn't even have a flash cart of any sort. Problem is that if they did know what a gig was, then they wouldn't ask the question in the first place since the answer is and always will be "a varying amount".

    Say it with me now children, "a Varying Amount".

    That is precisely why we don't get a nickel ever time this question is asked.

    How long is a piece of string? A: Twice as long as it is from one end to the center.
    How deep is a hole? A: Same as above.

    How much can a 1gig cart hold. Just about 20-25 games. Depends on size of the rom.
