How many gigs (or megs) is 9000 blocks and why does nintendo keep using this ridiculous block system to describe how much memory you have on your SD card?

There is absolutely no need for your quotation of the initially rude response, and certainly no need for the response you quoted. The TC may simply be bad at maths, and may find it more effort to work it out than others here would.

Didn't your mother ever tell you that if you have nothing nice to say, do not say anything at all? The TC simply asked a question, and you two are being c**** about it.

8 blocks is roughly 1 megabyte (in other words, blocks are pretty much just megabits).

Therefore, 9000 blocks is about a gigabyte.

This seems accurate from my experience, because when I had about a gigabyte left on my 1GB card I had about 9000 blocks left.

The maths does not work. If 8 blocks were roughly 1 megabyte, then 8000 blocks would be roughly .8 gigabytes. Am I right?

I would normally agree with you, but the TC really did have it coming. If you post that you "can't be bothered" to do something, than you have no right to get an answer from anyone else.

If he would have came in and said that he "can't figure out the math, and would like some help" I feel more people would have gladly helped him out.
