Hi Lee,

Actually, a 16 MB file is 16,000,000 bytes in size whilst a 16 MiB file
is 16,777,216 bytes in size.  So when a Flash card manufacturer sells a
16 MB card, it won't fit a 16 MiB file on it as there's not enough room.
Just like HDD manufacturers, Flash card manufacturers are using the
nomenclature correctly whereas others (like, say, Manuel) are not.  ;)
