4. Question: I bought a 200GB HD, but it's only 188GB! I GOT RIPPED OFF!

Answer: Nope. Computer manufacturers list drives in a different format than what computers actually use. Drives are listed as if 1GB = 1000KB. However computers really see it as 1GB = 1024KB. So while you think your 200GB HD = 200,000KB, since 1GB really equals 1024KB, given you actually do have 200,000KB, you really have 200,000/1024 minus formatting and such. Don't worry, you're not the only one who finds the standard stupid.
Um, 1GB=1024MB, 1MB=1024KB. 1GB=(1024*1024)KB=1048576KB.

So, you might want to change all of the KB's to MB's.

Jam it back in, in the dark.
