Question: How many MB in a GB?
Note: Verify the capitalization on "MB." Using a lowercase "b" is a Megabit (Mb) and an uppercase "B" is a Megabyte (MB). Verify the capitalization on "GB." Using a lowercase "b" is a Gigabit (Gb) and an uppercase "B" is a Gigabyte (GB).
There are 1,000 megabytes in 1 gigabyte
For every one Gigabyte (GB) there are 1,000 Megabytes (MB).
Note: In the past computers only used base 2 (binary) for file sizes. However, in December of 1998, the IEC introduced a new system that uses the metric system, so sizes that use prefixes like 'kilo' are equal to 1,000 and not 1,024.
There are 953.67400 mebibytes in 1 gigabyte
For every one Gigabyte (GB) there are 953.674 Mebibytes (MiB).
To determine relative sizes, your 1,000 megabytes have been converted into bytes to give us a total of 1,000,000,000 bytes, which is relative to the values shown below.
- 1,000,000,000 Characters (8-bit character)
- 200,000,000 Words (five character words)
- 208,159.87 Pages (full single-spaced plaintext page)
- 74,872.72 Word Documents (full single-spaced Microsoft Word file)
- 686.03 Floppy Disks (1.44 formatted floppy disk)
- 317.89 Photos (3MiB photo)
- 238.42 eBooks (4MiB eBook)
- 158.95 MP3s (6MiB MP3 song)
- 63.58 Videos (15MiB video clip)
- 1.47 CD (74 minute 650MiB CD)
- Megabyte (MB)
- Gigabyte (GB)
- Mebibyte (MiB)
