    1 block is right around 128 KB (or 1024 Kb).

    I placed a newly formatted 32MB (PC shows 29.4 MB actual) SD card into the Wii and it showed 235 block open. I did the math and 128.1 KB for each block was what I got. I also put in an empty 1 GB (982 MB actual) SD card and it showed 7857 open block. After doing the math it comes up 127.98 KB per block.

    That's what the technical specs say but I'm not sure if there's 512 MB of free space when you first open up the box. There would have to be 4096 open blocks for that to be true. I don't quite remember how many blocks were open the first time I powered up the Wii though.

    The Block Size

    1 Block equals exactly 128kb. or 1/8 of an MB.

    the reason why you get +1 per gb, is because windows only will display MB, and not go down into KB.
    also the wii will not utilize partial blocks, thus the .2 block of the 235 card is cut off.
    the wii also comes with 192 MB Flash Memory. (available)
    Odd really.
