can be done with any USB stick using the following. This was posted by a member I forget the name but have kept a copy for reference
1. Let Vista test is, and check the Do not Retest this device checkbox.
2. Unplug the device
3. Go to regedit
HKEY_local_machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\EMDMgmt
4.find the key related to you device (the device vendor and name is in the key)
5. Change the follwing values:
Device Status 0x02
ReadSpeedKBs 0x1000
WriteSpeedKBs 0x1000
6. Plug the device, right click on it to open properties and enable cache
I do not own Vista but apparently it is easy to enable readyboost by doing this :-
1. Plug in the device.
2. Open the Readyboost tab on the device properties.
3. Select "Do not retest this device"
4. Unplug the device
5. Open regedit (start->run->regedit)
6. Expand - HKLM (Local Machine)\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\EMDgmt
7. Find your device.
8. Change Device Status to 2 decimal
9. Change ReadSpeedKBs to 1000 decimal
10. Change WriteSpeedKBs to 1000 decimal
11. Plug in the device.
12. Enable Readyboost
