Thread: ReadyBoost, Why don't I have it?

    Default Re: ReadyBoost, Why don't I have it?

    But that would not make much sense since a USB hard drive would transfer at
    the same rate as your system HDDs whereas a Ready Boost uses a fast flash
    drive or flash card whose transfer rate is much master then a HDD which is
    why you can get a performance benefit with it.

    Actually all you need to have is a new version of flshdrives or flashdrives that was released after the release of the vista OS. The flash drives today are now capable of using USB 2.0 which is needed for the Readyboost
