ReadyBoost Quit!
I have a Gateway laptop running Vista Home Premium with 2 GB of ram. When I
bought the computer, I also bought a San Disk 2 GB SD card. Readyboost
worked fine.

My puppy decided he wanted the SD card more than I did. I have bought 4 GB
SD card, a 4 GB flash drive and now a San Disk 2 GB SD card. Everytime I
plug any of those in, Vista tells me that the card or flash drive is not fast
enough.

How can it work and then not work? I had a problem a while back with my
infcache.1 file being corrupt and I deleted it like the instructions in this
forum said to. Readyboost still worked. Now it doesn't. Help.

Re: ReadyBoost Quit!
I believe that there are about 6 different speeds of San disk SD drives.
Apperantly you replaced the one that your dog ate with a slower version I
am able to use a San Disk Ultra 2 for Ready Boost witth my laptop that has a
built in SD slot.

I've found two issues.

First, the drive really just isn't fast enough.

Second, it's configured for fast removal rather than high performance.

My 2G flash drive worked when I first put it in the system. After a crash
and restart, it re-discovered the drive and it wouldn't use it for ready
boost. After looking around at the settings, I found that when it
rediscovered the drive, it has set it to be ready for quick removal, which
reduces it's performance.
