    question for people who have R4

    how many games can you hold on a 1GB sd?
    getting mines at the weekend and just curious to know
    PS3 now, sorry Wii. You gather dust.

    mine should be here tomorrow or the day after... but it would depend on the size of the games you want to put on ... on average most games are between 32mb and 64mb with the more rarer 16, 8 and 128mb ... on average you can put around 10-15 games on and probably have space for saves (not sure how big the moonshell app. is but you can always take that out if you need more room.)

    well 1 gig is 1024 megs however any form of memory is NEVER how much they say it is (like my 160 gig HDD has only 152 gigs when fully formated) so i would assume you would have about 950megs of space for games and from what Clish is saying, you could probably fit 18-20 games (assuming you do actually own them of course!)

    yeah with my R4 I have about 20 games or a lil less ,but once I'm tired of one i just put another in its place
    but if ya ask me you don't need to have about 20 games ,I would be glad with about 3 - 5 games which i really like and would be pretty happy with that.
    too much means - you play a game ,don't like it at first and just leave it. so I try to finish first some 3-5 games to replace them with something new.
    Your Pro ,or your a noob - thats life

    I own a USA Wii (sold my EUR Wii) 2x Wii motes 2x Nunchucks

    Super Mario Galaxy | Naruto Clash of Ninja Revolution | Guitar Hero 3(selling PM if interested) | Zelda TP | Wario Ware

    I don't know yet myself, I just ordered my R4, problem is I live in the US (Ohio to be specific), and I ordered my R4 from a place in Hong Kong , China (Deal Extreme), which is not only halfway across the world from me, but since China is communist, i'm pretty sure that they will have to scan it before export, and with US customs, they may take their time, and mine just left the warehouse, so I won't be getting mine until like around the following week if not 2-4 weeks, you should be able to save at least 10 games if not more, but i would say at least 15 games on a 1GB card

    Clish-I think moonshell is required to run multiple games on one card

    Nope hes right 1024KB=1MB so really your HD is 160 but it would of been advertised for more.

    The CD with the R4 can trim the roms down which saves space. Since games need to be 12MB, 24MB 52mb 128MB to run right there is most of the times junk data in the file. The R4 doesnt need the junk data for it to run so you can use trim it down.

    It really depends on the games mine ranges from 15-20

    Ever save file is also 512KB.

    The moonshell is about 4MB-5MB, It also creates a 4MB file I believe.

    the reason most memory devices are not as big as advertised is because companies usually just round off each gig. so they rate each gig as 1000MB instead of 1024 and if you take 24MB off of each gig on a 160 gig HDD you have 3840MB that you dont get which is close to what i dont have when i format. ive only seen a few HDDs that actually are as big as they say

    naw moonshell is only to play media files so i think you don't really need it if you don't want...i got my r4 yesturday and so far I put around 15 games with about 10 saves makingaround 7mb ... so i would just leave around 20mb for saves, and if you want to trim some of your games it would save even more space....

    now concerning the idea that HDD's show different numbers.... when you buy an HDD saying it has 60gig's it has 60gigs, yes when you go check it with the proporties and such it might actually say something less than 60 (in terms of bytes) but it still equates to 60 .. some of you said so already 1mb = 1023bytes this means that there are actually more than 1000bytes in 1mb so it should be expected that when yo uhave 1gig which most people know as 1000mb or 1,000,000bytes but that is not correct ... if you have 1gig you have to factor in the extra 23 byte for every 1mb which adds up to around 23,000btes which is 230mb so when you check you will probably find that you have not 1,000,000 bytes but 999,770 bytes...now if you do this for an HDD for 120gigs... you get the picture...

    so no the companies are not scamming you.... it is just they way the ratio's between each new unit is set and the simplistic way people are taught to remember what a gigabyte is (imagine trying to tell what a gig is.... "well.. a gigabyte is 999.770mb")

    P.S. the companies don't just make 1gig 1000mb they still make it whatever it needs to be .. (999,770bytes)
