    No, gigabytes or GB is larger than a Megabyte or MB.

    Here is a table, although u only need 2 know till Terabytes, these may some in handy in conversion.

    1 bit (b) = Single binary digit/code (1 or 0)

    1 nibble (Nb) = 4 bits

    1 byte (B) = 8 bits

    1 Kilobyte (KB) = 1024 bytes

    1 Megabyte (MB) = 1024 Kilobytes

    1 Gigabyte (GB) = 1024 Megabytes

    1 Terabyte (TB) = 1024 Gigabytes

    1 Petabyte (PB) = 1024 Terabytes

    1 Exabyte (EB) = 1024 Petabytes

    1 Zetabyte (ZB) = 1024 Exabytes

    1 Yottabyte (YB) = 1024 Zetabytes

    1 Brontobyte (BB) = 1024 Yottabytes

    Hope this helps

    Feel free 2 email me if u have any more questions !!

    No, a gigabyte is 1000 times (or 1024 times depending on how you count them) larger than a megabyte.

    Gigabytes are larger than megabytes.

    No it goes like this. Bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes, then tb

    the largest is GB that is gigabytes.

    Then its MB (megabytes)

    then KB (kilobytes)

    and the smallest is bytes.

    Kilo = 1,000

    Mega = 1,000,000

    Giga= 1,000,000,000

    Tera= 1,000,000,000,000

    These are the "decimal" versions. Binary versions are similar but use powers of 2 instead of ten.

    So a binary kilo is 1024 (=2^10), Mega is 1024x1024=1048576, etc

    These are common computer data sizes but these are many others:

    It's the opposite - Gig is much much much bigger
