how to convert GB to bytes and MB to bytes

Answers

  • 1GB=1024MB
    1MB=1024KB
    1KB=1024bytes

    so if you need to convert 2 GB to bytes you will get this: 2GB=2*1024*1024*1024 bytes.

  • The first one is correct but others are incorrect.
    As I have said 1Gb=1024MB so 4.7GB=4.7*1024MB On the other hand 1MB=1024KB so 4.7GB=4.7*1024*1024KB. multiply it by 1024 to get amount of bytes.

    that mean

    700 MB = 700 * 1024 * 1024 bytes

    4.7 GB = 5 * 1024 *700 * 1024 * 1024 bytes

    8.5 GB = 8 * 1024 * 500 * 1024 * 1024 bytes

     

    is it correct ?

  • Warning! The previous post has a potentially confusing typo:

     

    "As I have said 1Gb=1024MB so 4.7GB=4.7*1024MB ..."

     

    The lowercase "b" is often used to indicate "bits", not "Bytes"!

    (for example, in "Serial ATA 3.0Gb/s",  "3.0Gb/s" is meant to indicate gigabits-per-second...)

     

    Conversion to bits would be a different conversion process.

  • Is this Decimal use or Binary use? i.e Decimal is done in 1000 and Binary is 1024. MB and MiB?
