    No, the difference is that all u did was read from wikipedia is that there are different 2 ways of calculating, base 10 and base 2. You don't know why or how, but u know 10 is not the same as 2.


    Xorbe actually understands the difference between base 10 and base 2, and why they are different, as do I, and he was kind enough to explain it OP. Something you would not be able to do.



    You're like a glass window dude,. Easy to see through.

    I'll Prob get an infraction but I digress.:(

    Hang on, I thought you didn't want to talk to me any more? I think you're confused...

    Talk to me in a polite and decent manner and I'll be happy to debate anything you like. Try it, it's good for the soul.

    For most people that is a two way street.

    Since the question has been answered, is there any reason to keep this thread open?

    I'll even recap: Drive manufacturer says 1GB = 1000MB; Windows says 1GB = 1024MB. There is your discrepancy.

    There are 10 kinds of people ... ones that understand counting in binary, and those that don't ... :laugh:

    Good question and no, there is no reason.
