What is a simple conversion for Kb to Mb in dealing with audio files?  It doesn't seem to be the same for all files, no matter what form they are in.

Exact Conversion

1,024 Kilobyte (KB) = 1 Megabyte (MB)


easy conversion: approximately 1000 KB = 1 MB for files that are usually relatively small

1 Megabyte = 1024 Kilobytes
Transfer rates are done in bits, or millions or thousands of bits.  There are 8 bits in a byte.  So:
1 Megabyte = 1024 Kilobytes = 1024 *8 = kilobits 8192 Kb(kilobits)

Exactly :

1MB = 1024*KB
1MB = 1000kb

because : 1KB = 8.192kb

DAMMIT! and he said Mb (mega bits).

Well, use your brain to use the formula the way u want, its all described easily there to work it out for either way.

If you have a file that is about 255,000 KB, Grab a calculator and divide 255,000 by 1024 and it will give you the amount of MB,
Or you can just aproximate by looking at the file, ie: 255,000 KB = 255 MB

1,024 kilobits(kb) = Megabytes(MB)0.125
1,024 kilobits(kb) = megabits (mb)1
1 Kilobytes(KB) = Megabytes (MB)0.0009765625

1024 KB = 1 MB
1024 MB = 1 GB
KB to MB Formula = # of KB / 1024 and vice versa

MB to GB Formula = # of MB / 1024 and vice versa

1,024 Kilobyte (KB) = 1 Megabyte (MB)
This is an exact conversion. The difference yo see in the real world is due to cluster size. this makes smaller files waste disk space. this occurs because one cluster only holds one file or a part of it. If you have several files smaller than one cluster every file will use his own cluster (no matter if the file only fills 1/2, 1/5 or even 1/20 of the cluster)
This is the reason of higher delays when copying lots of smaller files than copying one larger file even when the total size is equal.

In file properties tab (windows) you can illustrate the explanation above seeing the size indicators:
1 Size.
2 Size on disk.

Here you can see that one 2,67 KB (2.744 bytes) file fills 4,00 KB on disk (4.096 bytes)due to cluster size (4Kb).

Hope this answer was useful.

Some programs use a MB as 1024 and some as 1000, but its mostly 1024.
