1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte
1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte
1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte
1024 gigabytes = 1 terabyte

1024^4 = 1,099,511,627,776 (approximately 1 trillion bytes)

Convert lba to cyl, head, sector

The problem with CYL/HEAD/SECTORS is that disk-drives have gotten *MUCH* too large -- the limited size of each field mean that a new scheme, namely LBA (Logical Block Addressing) had to be created to deal with disk-drives that are 1000 times too large (4 Terabytes versus old 4 Gigabytes).

So, if you have 312,500,000 sectors,
and each sector is 0.5 Kilobytes,
you have 156,250,000 Kbytes,
or 156,250 Mbytes,
or 156 Gigabytes.

If you bought a 640 GB hard drive when the drive is formatted it will be slightly smaller then the size listed on the box.
This is caused by a difference between the size of a GB as defined by windows versus the maker of the drive. The drive manufacture assumes that 1 GB is 1000 MB, where as windows assumes it is 1024 MB.
If you carry these assumptions all the way down to the byte level you get:
640GB = 640000 MB = 6.4 * 10^8 KB = 6.4 * 10^11 bytes
this is the base storage size of the drive.
Then windows takes this number and does the same in reverse to get the number of GB is displays:
6.4 *10^11 bytes = 6.25 * 10^8 KB = 610351 MB = 596.1 GB
There is nothing wrong with the drive, it's just a different unit of measurement.

How big is a 1 tb hd

A terabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. The prefix tera means 1012 in the International System of Units (SI), and therefore 1 terabyte is 1000000000000bytes, or 1 trillion (short scale) bytes, or 1000 gigabytes. 1 terabyte in binary prefixes is 0.9095 tebibytes, or 931.32 gibibytes. The unit symbol for the terabyte is TB or Tbyte.

Coby mpc7097 el playlist solo llega a 200 temas pero tengo 800 temas en aparato, quisiera aumentar el numero maximo del playlist, gracias por la ayuda que puedan ofrecerme.

lo que puedes hacer es formatearlo desde mi equipo "my computer" encuentra el dispositivo y dale con el botón de la derecha, selcciona en donde dice formatear, selecciona fat (default) y eso te libera el espacio pero cuidado porque te borra la información. despues de que hagas eso puedes meter toda tu música de nuevo lo único es que este dispositivo es de 2GB
17,179,869,184 .......... bits
2,147,483,648 .......... bytes
2,097,152 .......... kilobytes
2,048 .......... megabytes
2 .......... gigabytes
0.001953125 terabytes
0.0000019073 petabytes
0.0000000018 exabytes

una canción=entre 1500 y 6000KB quiere decir que en tu dispositivo caben alrededor de 420 cancionesy a estos dispositivos no les puedes agregar mas memoria si quieres meterle mas música tienes que comprar un aparato con mas capacidad.

si te sirve el consejo dame un buen rating
