    When I look at the Card Info, it reads XMB free of 243MB card, when I have a 256MB card. Is this common?

    I'm going to take a stab at it and asume that it's formatted? Maybe it's pre-formatted for windows and such...
    Stabbing in the dark I am.

    It's kind of funny that your first post in that thread is simply a link to another thread ...which is dead.

    Just to make this a useful post, here is the answer to this question, as posted by broberob (with the goofy formatting removed):

    These numbers are for marketing purposes. Possibly to make explanation easier, they use multiples of 1000 instead of 1024. A true kilobyte is 1024 bytes and a true megabyte is 1024 kilobytes and a true gigabyte is 1024 megabytes, instead of the reported 1000*1000*1000


    If you have a 256mb sd card they are saying 1000 *1000 * 256 = 256,000,000 mb.

    When it is actually 256,000,000 DIVIDED by 1024 then 1024 then another 1024 to get the real data size, which is 244.140625 bytes.

    I believe there is a class action suit filed by a consumer agency against all Hard Disk manufacturers regarding the false (misleading) capacities claimed by them.
