Well ok, I don't really need the memory, but I know you can get a usb drive and stick it into your comp to make it run as RAM in your comp on Vista. Anyone know if this is possible on XP? Some kind of hack for it? Cus that'd be pretty sweet :D

hi,i had a conversation with my friend a long time ago, and its pretty much impossible.
i dont know if this is still true, but it is seriously unlikely. It would be so expensive, and so big.
I dont even think were near to doing this but it would be fantastic if it was cheap, reliable, and small.
good suggestion.

I thought it was possible with Windows Vista. I thought that was one of the features...to be able to stick in a usb drive and whatnot.

Interesting. I didn't understand the whole thing, but I got the gist of it.

Sucks that XP can't do it :thumbsup:
