Don't know if this helps or not. I have a question also.
I tried the same thing with a PNY 1 GB Compact Flash (CF) card. Think the Vista O/S message (Under the 'ReadyBoost' tab when you click on properties of the drive) told me my CF card was not fast enough, or some such message. I did a little research & found some photography cards that were supposed to be high speed but were more expensive.
In my search I ran across & have just received a USB 2 GB San Disk 'Cruzer' Micro Flash Drive. They are cheap around $25.
The system is telling me it is using 1.79 GB of this drive (some programs were included on the drive that I'm ignoring for now) for ReadyBoost. I would like to know how to tell if it is really working or not.
The task manager appears to just show the original 1 GB of memory I had originally. (Probably exactly what it is supposed to do, since this is the true RAM I have.
Hope this make sense. This is my first communication via BleepingComputer.com.
