Those numbers mean nothing to many.  Let’s measure in a real world sense.

A CD is 700 MB.
A DVD is 4.7 GB.

Depending on the sizes of the photos, one CD can hole up 150 to 1000 photos , and 1GB holds 300-1500 photos.

1TB can save 250- 1495 full length DVD movies, based on quality of the movies.

Today, the storage of a hard drive in a computer is from 500GB to 1TB. 

Common memory cards for a camera or smartphone are from16 GB to 64GB.
