Just found this info which may help.


To be used as a ReadyBoost device, your flash drive has to pass several tests, including available free space, write performance, and random read performance. When you connect a supported flash device to your system and choose the Speed Up My System option, Windows Vista runs a quick performance test to see if the device meets minimum standards required for ReadyBoost. Those standards are:
[LIST]
[*]2.5 MB/sec throughout for 4 KB random reads
[*]1.75 MB/sec throughout for 512 KB random writes[/LIST]These results must be consistent across the entire device. In addition, the device must be at least 235 MB in size (although you can designate less than the full space on the drive for the ReadyBoost cache).
If any of these tests fail, the drive is rejected.

now i am confused!

But what is the speed boost thing in the first place?

Is it some software that speeds up the data transfer process or something?

It's something inbuilt to Vista that allows you to use a pendrive as RAM.
