What you don't see is that ~10% of the storage capacity that you paid for is devoted to software that's ready and waiting for an application program on a computer, smart phone etc. to access it and let the application prevent copying DRMed files to the SD card.

If you're using file formats that don't support DRM, and using software other than Windows Media Player, you're not likely to see anything more than an available capacity that doesn't add up to what the label promises.
