AtlCub Posted November 30, 2005 Share Posted November 30, 2005 Good Morning, Just received my 2gb 133x SD chip, when I put it in my chip reader to copy some music to it to put in my Dell Axim, I went into Disk Manage to format it and even before I did anything it was only reporting 1.80gb. What gives ? it's reporting 2,000,000,000 bytes raw space, isn't 2gb of RAM supposed to be roughly 2,048,000,000 ?? I know the harddrive industry enjoys ripping off customers by calling a gig 1,000,000 bytes which frankly is bull and we all know it. But I thought RAM was RAM and always obeyed the 2^x rules for accurate size, is this no longer true ? If this is the case, I will be promptly returning these chips and not bothering to use my pda as an mp3 player. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
