Yeah unfortunately most HDD manufacturers consider 1GB as 1,000,000,000 bytes and not 1073741824 bytes like it really is, so it makes the drive's capacity seem bigger (just a marketing scheme).
For example, my Seagate "300GB" HDD in my computer is reported my Windows as 300,058,181,632 bytes in size, which in actuality is only 279.45GB. WTF?
wouldn't that be false advertising?
