Doh, just bought it from them at £9.99 and haven't received it even!

I have a feeling they refund if the price has dropped within a short space of time, but can't find it anywhere. Did I dream that or is it only on larger items?

Anyway, seems an even better deal now.

Blue max, the price drop policy gives you a refund if you bought it within 30 days.

how do people make these sooo cheap... wicked!!!

Thanks robertvan1,
'every little helps'!

Fingers crossed - I'm sure a fair few people purchased them at 9.99 as that was a good price then.

I'll bet they drop within the next month too.

I did that last night, but have yet to hear anything. I found the way to do it over on mse - did you follow that route or another?

Cheers.

UPDATE: Just came through. Thanks folks.

Should just say that is is a bit plasticky. Not too good, so not the end of the world if they don't get returned from printers etc. Mounts easily on a mac in case anyone is wondering.

Keep getting cheaper and cheaper, good find edi :thumbsup:

oh i am fed up with saying this They all are!!!! :-D


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!!!!

Why would I want to use ReadyBoost?

Surely you must have 1GB of memory, at which point any gains from RB are negligible?

Can't install drivers on my old Windows 98 (second edition) PC. Been trying for hours without success.

The only reason I bought it was to copy across files from my old PC to my new PC (which runs Vista Premium.)

Works fine on my new PC but will probably return for a refund.

Anyone with Win 98SE able to install the drivers OK?

Edit: should have mentioned that I obtained the driver installation file for Win98SE from bytestor's website, here:

bytestor.com/ima…exe

Why don't you just plug your old hard drive into your new PC as a slave and copy the files across ? :?

Yes I suppose I could do that. A bit fiddly though.

Or get yourself an external hard drive and dump the lot. In truth you really should have to backup your data. Well, they are pretty cheap now. I had some dvd-r's that burned successfully, but when I come to read them - nowt. So now I don't trust dvd's.

Graham

Nice one edi. Just ordered three.

Voted hot.

I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago when they were £14.99, I thought I was getting good value then.

I did the price drop thing when it went down to £9.99 and got my refund. When it went down to this price I did it again, thinking they'd refund £1.49...but they've done it from the original £14.99. So I've only paid £3 ish in all. Now that's a hot deal.

I did back up my important files and settings to CD-r and I've successfully copied them across to my new PC.

However I have 15GBs of mp3s which I never bothered to back up but which I'd like on my new PC. I transferred a few Gigabytes via CD-r but it's a pain and I've notice that some of the longer mp3 file-names are truncated which is a pain in the ass.

I've e-mailed bytestor and asked them to help me.

Will keep you posted!

Bytestor sorted out my problem with installing the drivers on my Windows 98 second edition PC.

The driver set-up file contained on their website didn't work for me. They e-mailed me a different one:

v2.36r020 - win98SE new drivers.zip

I unzipped and ran the setup.exe file (after uninstalling the previous one which didn't work) and everything worked OK.

One tip:

Don't copy files directly to the flash drive but either put them in a folder first and copy the folder to the flash drive or set up a folder in the flash drive and copy them into that folder.

If you don't do this then you may find that you are only able to copy across less than 400MB worth of files rather than the full 2GB.

P.S. Tech support were very good so don't be afraid to use them if you need to.

P.P.S. The drive is very slow on a windows 98SE machine .. much slower than copying files using CD-rs!

Decent speed on my Windows Vista PC though.

Went to buy this this morning, and it's up to £9.99 :-(

I paid £9.99 for it too but Amazon refunded the difference when the price went down to £8.50 (after I e-mailed them about it.)

It's the other way round now though... it has gone up in price

Yeah that's true. Just wait I'm sure it'll come down again soon!
